Sailing adventure in Los Roques.
Los Roques is a perfect place for a regatta and cocktail cruises, you can make a circuit passing by each one of the islands, usually the sail boats make this circuit visiting one island per day, the navigation between each island a hard sail of one or two hours, from EI Gran Roque to one of the furthest places of the archipelago would be Cayo de Agua usually you have to sail in the morning so that the sun doesn't make much reflection in the water and you can distinguish the shallow waters, the reefs and the passages trough the narrow straits that are a truly outstanding show when the sun is at your back, the light is really good for pictures and best of all is that the navigation is not stressing and you can take your time to enjoy at peace of this beautiful straits, taking pictures or drinking a Pina Colada, usually, while sailing there is another activity that will make your heart beat stronger, "Trawling", drop your camera, your Pina Colada and everything you might have in your hands, you can't let lunch escape, that lunch that the generous sea of Los Roques always gives us, if there's anything that is excess in Los Roques is the quantity of fish, trolling from the boat you can catch Carite (Spanish makrel), Tuna, Barracuda or Bonito. The return is in the afternoon so that the sun is at your back like when you sailed there in the morning and you can see all the way back to your destination, and enjoy all the shades of blue.
After we pick up our guests at the landing strip, and after explaining how the facilities of the boat work and that there is nothing missing, like cigarettes, film rolls, batteries, and once you have changed your clothes for more comfortable ones we set sails. The circuit begins at Gran Roque from there we sail to Noronqui, (If it is just a Day Tour then we could sail to Cayo Muerto) it is about an hour and a half sailing, for the ones that have never tried sailing and who might be a bit frightened, it will be alright after five minutes, when the engine is switched off and the sails are raised, we will feel the safety of being here, while listening to the sound of the waves, a fish jumping out of the water, the sea gulls or a forked tail heron that is pursuing the boat... Heard a fish jump? Run get your angle to catch a humble lunch with fresh fish, because even the most fearful and faint hearted person can discover in just five minutes that this close encounter with nature, that this is one of the most virgin and untouched places of the world which can make a change in your life, you have to fish to eat, but if you couldn't there is always a chance to trade something for a good fish or a lobster, the wind is used to transport from one place to another, anyone can grab the helm of the boat along with the captain who will explain you the basic principles about the wind and the sail, anyone will feel like they are back at the time of the old pirates, brave and bold daring to forget everything that is not natural "Like The City". >>

Noronqui are three islands the first one has in its entrance a wreckage, the second one is long and the third which is the one we are going to gives total protection against the wind and the waves, it is a beach that has big shallow spots and then a deep fall, most of them are like that, you can see the clear blue and suddenly a dark blue line, the boats can anchor close to the shore or to one of this shallow spots to jump over to the ground, or walk to the shore and swim in the blue deep space that these beaches give for the keels, or you can go down in the auxiliary boat to take the camera, the towels and the icebox with the beers, while the cook prepares lunch. Noronqui is a good place for snorkeling; it has many spots where you can go with the auxiliary boat and every time We anchor we are alert when we sit on the board to see some friends that come to the surface sometimes, when you hear the first sound or you see the first movement on the water you have to be ready because surely it's a turtle that raise their heads over the surface to look at us and then they go inside the water again, they go under the boat, and go out on the other side... In Noronqui sometimes there are day tours that come from the Posadas in fast boats, they leave the people there in the morning and come back for them in the afternoon to take them back to the posada, almost most of the islands are visited by this day tours, they are not many because they always leave them in Francisqui or Crasqui leaving perhaps the best islands for the people on sail boats.
The next day, when we wake up with the aroma of freshly brewed coffee, there are some people that before breakfast, will take an awakening and, strengthening swim, because the water is fresh, right, neither cold nor hot, they do some exercising, a walk around the beach, you just wake up, brush you teeth, go up the stairs and take a deep breath and then jump in the water. There are some who wait till the last call for breakfast because they are very sleepy and fond of the bed listening to the sweet sound of the waves breaking against the boat, the same sound that made them sleep and he repeats to himself just ten more minutes... after breakfast they take some rest while the crew finishes cleaning the kitchen and setting everything in the boat (take the hammocks down, prepare the baits) for the next stop which would be Sarqui Island. >>
