Ride the Winds Off Shell Point, Just a Short Hop From Tallahassee

    By Tim Wheeler

    Experienced sailors know the joy of being out on the water, slapping across the waves with only the sound of the wind in your ears. Beginners can get to know that feeling, too, at Apalachee Bay Yacht Club on Shell Point. Just a short drive down from Tallahassee, lessons and boat rentals of various sizes are available to members. Teach your kids to sail, and they'll learn the sense of independence that comes from navigating using only what the winds and currents offer.
