Because it's published by a man, targeting the sailing world that is predominantly men.

You gotta remember where Bob Bitchin has come from. He published an outlaw biker magazine and tattoo magazine. Is this so far fetched for him to have women gracing his magazine. I say we are lucky (or unlucky depending on your side of this issue) that these women even have clothes on.

For me, when I picked up my first issue of Latts & Atts I thought, FINALLY! a sailing magazine that's not about racing or multi-million dollar yachts with a bunch of preppie snobs at the helm.

I also enjoy reading Cruising World. OMG! The May issue has 3 beautiful women just standing around on the bowsprit.

Bob, where do I renew my subscription?
