Spanish Water Hurricane Hole

Spanish Water lagoon, the number one mangrove hurricane hole in the South of the Caribbean Sea, is perfectly protected from waves and has only one narrow entrance to the open ocean. Hurricanes as Dorian (in August 2019) tend to stay north of Curacao. Thus, more than 100 sailing boats hide there in the summertime. Many of them leave in November, at the end of the hurricane season, then sailing west to Columbia and Panama Channel on their way to the Pacific Ocean and Polynesia. Some of the boats, however, abandoned and sunk, stay in Spanish Lagoon forever…

Four friends that met in Spanish Water in August 2019: Maurizio (SY Brendan’s Isle), Christian (SY Gabian), Nick (SY Fleur) and Uwe (SY Orinoco).
