We did 2 weeks in the islands a couple of years ago - yes, it rains every day pretty much, but not for long. During the day it's often a welcome fresh water rinse, without much cooling effect, really.
During the night it's a nuisance because all your ports are open so its getting up to close them, then 20 min later getting up again to open things up before you cook....
Only once, with a largely overcast sky, did it get cool enough to want to cover up for it (rain and a 29 knot squall), and even that passed fairly quickly.
It's nothing like sailing in the rain here in the PNW.
