Tania might want a bikini.... posing for a magazine cover au natural would be a bit risque even for a woman's sailing magazine.

To each his own I suppose. Maybe I need to start a sailing magazine for women- Total Bad Ass Chick Sailors. Tania Aebi could be our cover girl, no bikini necessary.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
