Kitesurfing Undine Cay, more sun and good wind

Session 555. Travelled back to Undine Cay from the Cape Tribulation beach and setup the beach shelter again. Everyone was well covered by sunscreen and clothing. My 0.5mm tropical dive suit provides good protection from the sun but any exposed skin must be covered with sun cream 3 times a day.

A helicopter from Port Douglas was on the Cay when we arrived. Its and expensive flight at $900 per person. The chopper departed after 30 minutes and we had the Cay to ourselves again.

The kitesurfing was superb again. Good wind and well powered on my 12m Airush Union kite. I was glad I had the 12 as it was the only kite I used for the trip.

I kited all around the Cay again. I did one long run surfing the small waves along the side of the Cay close to the blue water. When I tacked at the end of the reef I was downwind of the Cay and a fair way out so I headed back to the Cay toward the boat moored on the windward side.

There were no snorkellers in the water so I passed downwind of the large Sailway cat that was moored and kept going past the Cay.
