Many activities were possible during this all-day stop at a typical idyllic Bahamian out-island. We signed up for a
snorkeling-by-boat trip, but it was too rough. So we decided to take advantage of the wind and rent Hobie Cats.
It's been about 30 years since I sailed one - it was a blast! Hard to beat: air temp 80°, water temp 78°, wind 20 kts!
