    Very disappointed that you didn’t show any windsurfing pics as it was a lot more exciting than these races.

      We posted tons of photos and videos of the Games, and tried to get some of everything, and did get windsurfing.

      It got a bit overloaded with all the content each day so was easy to miss, so we combined all the links and videos of the Island Games footage in one post which can be found here.
