Who's your favorite Celebrity Sailor

I've seen many photos of celebrity sailors... If I had to pick a favorite it would be this guy. I just wrote a tribute to him on my blog in honor of the discovery of gravitational waves last week...
Post your pic of your favorite celebrity sailor and tell us why you picked them...

I liked Errol. He was a character (and from Tasmania, too.) His autobiography My Wicked, Wicked Ways was a fun read.

How about Humphrey Bogart?

Or Sterling Hayden?

Walter Cronkite?

Re: Who's your favorite Celebrity Sailor

Bogey H. Bogart, was a great sailor and raced his yawl Santana avidly around SoCal from '44 till his death in '57. He learned to sail as a kid and continued to sail most of his life. Supposedly Lauren Bacall was not as fond of the boat as Bogart tended to view sailing as male only sport lubricated with generous amounts of alcohol.
