The weather took its time warming up until suddenly it seems like summer almost. This was my first time out on the lake this year. The shorty wetsuit was plenty warm enough. Didn't quite ever get planing.
My wife and I had to skip Bonaire in January 2021 (no Americans were allowed down there), but later we did travel to Hatteras and spent a week with BABA. We stayed in one of the six houses rented by the club. It was almost normal since everyone in our house was fully vaccinated.
For the windier conditions down there, I rented a small board from Ocean Air Sports, which turned out very successful, although I either crashed or chickened out on every planing jibe attempt. (See first video.)
When the wind abated, I used my own board and my biggest sail. (See second video.)
