One day the wind was so strong--about 40 knots--that we literally could not paddle forward on a short crossing to Drawaqa Island. We turned around and set up camp in the jungle at the south end of Naviti Island. Within minutes, Semi and Sione had cut palm fronds and made a wind break for the kitchen area. They tied everything together with vines. The wind was screaming on the beach, but was was almost calm 20 feet away in the jungle.
