Spent a few weeks there on a sailboat this past winter. Amazing!

Spent time in Falmouth Harbour, Jolly Harbour and Green Island in Nonsuch Bay.

Green Island was the best kiting I've ever experienced. We anchored there for 10 days and it blew every single day. Small launch but its fine... gets a little crowded on the beach on weekends but there's tons of water. There`s a reef that protects the whole bay so pretty flat water inside. I ventured outside the reef a couple times but waves weren`t too clean but still fun. There's a kite school that boats you out there for $25 or something. That fee also covers boat rescue I believe. I'm not 100% but I think the school is called 40knots kiteboarding.

Anyways, didn`t make it to Jabberwock (sp?) which is near the airport but didn't feel I needed to since Green was so epic. And it's hard to get there on a boat. So if you have a chance to make it out to Green then take it.

All of the kiting pictures and clips from our video are at Green Island.




Also some pictures.
