January started with a great result for the “Uphill Challenge”, the first challenge in a row of sporting events.
This annual event raises funds for the Stichting Prinses Whilhelmina Fonds (a private organization that takes action preventing cancer) and began with the Uphill Challenge on Saturday 17 January. This year contestants cycled up or around the famous Tafelberg (Table Mountain). By doing this as many times as manageable they collected more than ANG100,000.
On Sunday 25 January participants chould choose to either Ride, Walk, Swim or Sail for the Roses or to participate in a 4-hour spinning session. Several team members of RE/MAX BonBini have also participated in this great event as they do every year. All participants have made their contribution to this good cause.
Curacao has planned for the development of a second mega pier for cruise ships in the Rif Fort area. The pier is intended to open in late 2016 / early 2017. This mega-pier will make it possible for Curaçao to welcome around 1 million cruise tourists in five to ten years.
To decide on a new name for the mega pier, Curacao has opened a website where people can make suggestions. The person who comes up with the most favored name will win a cruise! So grab the challenge and click here to enter this competition.
Curaçao Ports Authority (CPA) will start with the ‘Touristic Development Waaigat’ project.
Plein Air Curaçao - International Art Festival
Waaigat is inland water in the center of Punda which can be reached via the Annabaai. With the support of the Ministry of Economic Development and the guidance of the Waaigat Development Foundation the plans will be made possible.
Improving water quality is a high priority. Once the water quality has improved, the project continues with the construction of jetties for boats and yachts. The CPA will use plans developed by the Fundashon
Desaroyo Waaigat (2010) and the Waaigat Masterplan (2007) in order to offer its input into the development of the Waaigat into a marina village.
26 February - 7 March, 2015
