Bikini, Marshall Islands

We have a new 110 foot cutter rigged sailboat visiting Marina Santa Cruz. See http://www.totosailing.com/ I did not recognize the flag so I asked the crew. It is home ported in Bikini, Marshall Islands. (In the US a documented vessel can pick anywhere in the United States for a home port.) The owner obviously has a sense of humor.

Fair winds and following seas.
