The temptation when sailing to Hawaii is to wear t-shirts and flip flops. It's not good sailing garb but you'd really fit in once you hit the Islands. But the crew on Valis is just a bit snappier than that. Not only do we recover cushions with incredible precision and aplomb, but we dress like a Tommy Bahama's ad. For your consideration:
This is the sight that greeted me when I got home from work the other day. It was obviously a plea to not sail to Hawaii. Or it might have been a gesture of support. Or he might have been sleepy.
But, no matter what, he knew a quality Aloha Sailing Shirt when he saw one and didn't pass up the opportunity to get all geared up like a bad ass ocean going racer.
