Yes. Depending on weather and wind conditions. Lots of water sports have been going on the last few days. Yesterday it was very busy with all kinds if activity. Hot and a beautiful beach day. Winds picked up late afternoon.

Casual. No bare shoulders for men, long pants required. That kind of thing. I just wore long pants and a short sleeved box shirt, un-tucked, with a pair of runners.My wife usually had some type of sun dress and flats.
