Sailing abilities can be taught and learned. Beauty is, on the other hand, strictly in the important eye of the beholder. For men and women. In the end, it's just as easy to sail with a rich beautiful girl as it is a poor ugly one. What we end up sailing with...ah, now that is a matter of the vagaries and mysteries of life itself. That we even know what we are truly seeking or that we are guaranteed to end up happy is not a given, but the quest is one through fog-shrouded waters is it not?
