WORD WITH... CAPT. ANN SCHWAGERL

Any advice for young women who want to pursue a boating career?
In July Forbes held an online poll that asked, “On which celebrity’s yacht would you most enjoy spending a weekend?” Almost 40,000 people voted; here’s the tally:

Not to take away from the ex-President’s respectable fourth-place finish, but “None of the above” received 14% of the total vote.
