Sailing Around Bonaire’s Waters

Bonaire has been known for centuries as an island that produces some of the world’s finest sailors. Our flag incorporates a sailor’s compass as part of its design, demonstrating the navigation prowess the early Bonairean seafarers possessed. As a nation of sailors, Bonaire is still recognized for its contribution to the allied effort during World War II. A monument in Wilhelmina Park, placed by Eleanor Roosevelt, stands as testimony to the brave Bonaireans who gave their lives while serving in the Merchant Marines.

For almost 50 years, Bonaire has continued to celebrate its sailing tradition by hosting the International Sailing Regatta, held each fall. Sailors in all classes come to the island to race each other in various venues with even a category for 5 to 10 year old sailors. This age bracket competes in small craft and windsurfing events. There are parties, races and dancing in the streets. The entire island takes on a festive atmosphere and visitors from all over the world are welcome to participate as crew or spectators.

Sailing lessons for adults and children are available through the non-profit Bonaire Sailing School Association.

We also have a number of charter companies on the island.  Snorkel sails, weekend or daily charters are all possible. The breezes are gentle and the company congenial. A day sailing is a great way to relax and enjoy Bonaire from a different point of view.
