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.

The least they could do is to pick some good looking chicks for the cover...

She may not be doing "nothing"...she may be scanning for a channel, keeping a lookout for the next course turn, enjoying a well earned rest after...

-lugging provisions down to the boat
-stowing provisions
-fixing lunch
-coming off watch
-plotting a course correction
etc...

Just because she is looking good, and bikini clad doesn't mean she is not contributing..

I sense an old assumption rearing its head here

Seems to me that a woman can kick ass AND look good.

Badd Ass Chick Sailor Cover Girl

Is she any less attractive than the current Latts and Atts cover girl? I think not. Is she actually DOING something while looking good?- Hell yes!
