Way MORE attractive, actually.

Now if they could just trade outfits ...

Joking around aside, yes Mimsy I think we get your point, and if I had a daughter, the picture you posted does show exactly the kind of woman I would prefer she see on the cover of a magazine.

What are you pretending not to know ?

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.
Sounds good to me. Though as an elder, I doubt anyone wants to see me in a bikini.

I finally looked at the cover of L&A a few moments ago. There is a common name for the seat that she's occupying. Her role in that photo is to fulfill the seat's purpose in life. She's just doing her job, why can't everyone see that?

Uhhh...you guys do know that Bob comes to sailing from world of "Outlaw" motorcycle magazines right? L&A is the "Biker rag" of the sailing world.

If you compare a copy of L&A to a copy of Easy Rider or Iron Horse you'll see where the format came from and you'll see that the photography of the fairer sex is quite toned down from the genre where Bob cut his publishing teeth.

I keep offering to pose for a male cover shot but I get no takers and what's all this talk about six pack abs? I've got a full keg

Mimsy, you are soooo wrong on this, look at the cover again, she is on lookout for the yacumama that inhabit the waters off South America

If you look over her left shoulder, you'll see one sneeking up on them.............very serious stuff she's doing
