Aruba’s location – just outside the hurricane zone but well inside the summer trades – makes it one of the ultimate bucket venues for sailors looking for 15-25 knots of wind all summer long.  It’s like Garda or San Francisco but for windsurfers and kiters.  Unfortunately for yachting, the island – which sits just off the South American coast, is just too damned far from any real boating population to come here in numbers;  if you can’t carry it on a plane, you probably won’t be racing in Aruba.

But if you are a kiter or a windsurfer, this is the place.  And Aruba Hi-Winds, every year at the beginning of July, is the time to do it.  And if you have any disagreement with what we’re saying, watch the video first.  It’s a full 32 minutes long, and worth every second.  Those of you in charge of the flat screens at your club should download it off Youtube; this gorgeous film would be a perfect background for any yachting event.
