Who'd Be Your Ideal Sailing Companion ?

I'd be in a quandry...

Nigella Lawson for the food and home-keeping -

Rachida Dati for the conversation -

Zeehag for the sailing abilities -

Aishwarya Rai for the obvious reasons -

Hmmm

She would have to adventurous #1, handle the boat and me, and drink lots of beer.

Re: Who'd be your ideal sailing companion?

Mine would be Denice. She is the runner up at the Miss Uninverse Sweden for the past two years in a row and as she missed out on the big Miss U final, she will instead be at the Miss International final in China later in the year.

I have no idea what she would be like on board, but she is so pretty and very sweet. I've been solo sailing lately so in the worst case senario i could happily just say "just sit there and look pretty dear"



Oh yeah, this is not a total fantasy wish, as these are my photos and I have shot Denice many times over the years. I have yet to convince her that being stuck at sea on my boat with me is a good thing.

Re: Who'd be your ideal sailing companion?

A foodie, a politico, a sports car aficionado, and an actress seem, to me, to be rather strange choices for sailing companions.
What's your wife think?

Hmm Gord, she'll knows that she's all things to me anyway. But that won't stop her from kicking my ass...

Re: Who'd be your ideal sailing companion?

I just can't imagine a woman in a white sausage dress, long nails and high heels grinding a winch. Perhaps grinding something else though.

Try hard enough and you can imagine anything. The beauty of imagination is tat you can bypass reality
