It is interesting when you are trying to find an anchorage on one of these islands. From the chart and wind direction it looks like there should be no wind waves since they would have to 'bend' (refract) much more than 90° around the point of the island to get you - but they do.
I agree also about the effect of swells. In deep water you have quite long easy swells but when you get close to shore the wave length shortens and the waves get higher.
Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
