rec.dotters in bonaire?

        hey all;

        anyone going to be in bonaire this april? i'll be heading
        down april 17 for two weeks, right after high season ends.

        i've reserved gear with the bonaire windsurf place, and
        hope to get some serious TOW. i'm really looking forward
        to sailing in onshore wind - the last two years in aruba,
        the first few days on the water were always spent struggling
        to get upwind (and cursing my winter-atrophied muscles).

        trip report to follow, natch :)

Yes, but the tide tables suggest that we get our windsurfing done early
or move out to the deeper areas of the bay....

Yes, you are going to have to go out to the deep blue. I want boating
yesterday and had to jump wayyyyyy down (mid day) to get into the boat
at Harbour Village from the dock. We buzzed around the QMII. Mike, you
know the deal, tons of deep blue on the sides..small fin and all is
good.

Right, which is why I went and looked up the tide tables...
If anyone else wants to check the Bonaire tides, see:

www.mobilegeographics.com:81/calendar/month/3169.html

I'm assuming the tides for Lac Bay are essentially the same as for
Kralendijk...

        well, i'll have to look you up when i get there. i
        booked 10 days at the windsurf place. probably take
        a lesson once i get dialed in after what seems like
        an incredibly long winter.

        the anticipation is the best part of these vacations!

Tide info for Lac Bay is a find!   Good for planning lunch, or arrival
time.  Ann, can you verify that this site is reasonably accurate?

Mike I will start monitoring this site..or report to you when the
tides are low. In the 7 years I have been sailing here, I see it
really low about 4 times a year.

Ann may be your best reference on this, but I can verify that the tide
table did match we experienced.  It also matched (within a couple of
minutes) the table printed in a local newspaper.
If anyone finds a way to check the tides several months in advance, I'd
be very interested.  I'd like to be able to check the expected tides
before setting a firm date for a visit.
