The windsurfing action does not get a "Poor" rating only because sailing without a wetsuit is always a treat. I tried the Naish beginner's board, but didn't get anywhere fast. Could be the word "beginners" in the board's description, lack of wind, a proper fin, or the fact that I forgot to pop the 2 cams in (haven't used a sail with cams for 2 years so a mistake anyone could make!).

Apart from the sweltering heat and the local colony of sea birds that decided to start their daily singing practice at 4:30 am, we had a great time. The kids had a blast playing with their old and new friends, mud baths, water balloon fights (thank you Jonathan!), canoeing, windsurfing, etc. etc.

The action carried on until the very end, when Eva got thrown in the lagoon by Iona (allegedly), 15 minutes before our scheduled departure.
