The Tranquilo is back from Bonaire’s 42nd International Sailing Regatta

We have had some bad luck on the crossing to Bonaire and had to battle a small electrical fire off the coast of Curacao in the engine room resulting in a burned out starter motor.

Once in Bonaire, this made it impossible for us to get in and out of our tight slip in the marina and canceled our racing except for the long distance “Lac Bay Race” which we managed to win for the fourth consecutive year breaking our own speed record for that race. Next is the Curacao Heineken Regatta in November.
