This last winter Abacos water
temps were hovering in low 70s, definitely wetsuit temps. Air temps were not all that warm either; the fronts blowing through had temps down into the 50s at night and 70s in the day. Will still feel warm if you're coming from the frozen north, but bring a fleece. Who knows, you could get lucky this winter.
8 people on a 50' charter monohull
- did it several times, only way I could afford to go sailing in the Caribbean
. One time on a Gib'Sea
51, which has an interior
door to the crew cabin
, we did 10. When going diving
, we wound up with pairs going off the port and starboard boarding gates, and off the stern step, at the same time. The snorkelers were great boat
support! And yes, as most of us were singles you have to be good friends.
