Sail the Seas in Style

Summer in Hollywood means just one thing (well, two if you count the terrible sequels), and that's skin. Anyone who's anyone (from A- to Z-listers) is busy showing off his trainer's mettle. There's George Clooney in all his Lake Como fabulousness, there are Eva Longoria and Tony Parker celebrating their anniversary in Italy, and there's 74-year-old Giorgio Armani donning his best Speedo in Sardinia. (Thanks for the close-ups Socialite Life.)

So what do these celebs have in common, besides really good dermatologists? They're all jetting on the Mediterranean aboard schwanky boats. And just because you don't graze the cover of People's Sexiest Man Alive issue or earn seven figures for tossing a ball into a hoop doesn't mean you can't sail in style.

And luckily, you have a secret weapon of the seas: For the August issue of Condé Nast Traveler the assiduous Wendy Perrin has picked the top sailing specialists in the country, and the best cruises for every type of personality, from nature lover to party animal.

And if the winds happen to bring you toward the tip of Italy's heel, look out for Dame Helen Mirren (that's Her Majesty to us mortals) in her red bikini. Crusades have been mounted for less.


Unfamous people like me don't need trainers. We only need Photoshop.
