With strong east winds in the forecast the anchorage at the village gets a bit bumpy so we moved to the East end of the lagoon.
Alcyone, Magic and Pangaea joined in on the fun and we had a blast.
The winds were strong but the anchorage was very comfortable because there was little fetch. This also made for perfect kitesurfing conditions.
