Day Sail on Kaneohe Bay | Reunion Week
For those who want to enjoy the calm waters of Kaneohe Bay, Bill Leary and Lori Lloyd (’78) are offering afternoon sails during reunion week aboard their 35-foot cruising sailboat, Moku pe’a, for up to 6 passengers. A stop for swimming at the sandbar, poking around the coral heads to see turtles and manta rays, and a fly-by of the Morgan family’s Secret Beach and Hakipu’u are all part of the fun. Text or call Bill at 808.729.7467 to coordinate.
