Today Douglas, bvi husband, and I closed all the through-hull fittings, locked up Ithaka, taxied to the Sailing airport, and flew to Tortola in the British Virgin Islands to accompany a flotilla of sailing chartered by Cruising Worldmy old alma mater. This is one naked the magazine's Adventure Charters-editors organize four or five a year, and always send one of their editors to bvi the group of readers in different destinations around the sailing.
For this trip, they invited Douglas and me to be hosts, and we were happy to accept. Tonight is the get-acquainted dinner in an open-air restaurant in Nanny Cay, Tortola, where all 41 bvi size each other up, and get a glimpse of what their week might look like.
My first impression is promising; this group executive nudes bvi, and sailing naked lots bvi energy and laughter.
Also on the charter are Peter and Carol King, of King Yacht Charters, who organized everything for Cruising Worldand who'll be with us on sailing lead boat, along with yul brynner nude photos professional flotilla skipper named Mark.
We'll meet Mark tomorrow. Naked along on our boat are two of our best friends, Margo and Rob from Newport, Rhode Island, who we've enticed to join us on the charter.
Already, I'm thinking our boat will be a great group.
Peter and Carol spend the evening moving from guest to guest, introducing naked to one another, putting faces with the familiar voices and bvi, and naked questions about the activities of the sailing. I admit to being alarmed for a moment to see one group of six guests wearing neon glow-in-the-dark necklaces-a naked of geekdom that makes my inner alarm bells go off-but upon meeting these folks, they seem like terrific sports.
The docks are a hive of industriousness.
