JFK's One True Love

Before Jackie, Marilyn, and the slew of other women JFK gained carnal knowledge of, he was devoted to one special 'girl'. They were introduced when he was only 15. She was a mainstay in his life, and the night before he died, JFK sketched a rough picture of her and set it by his bedside. Who was she? Victura, an all-wood, 25-foot gaff rigged sloop. JFK's love for the sea had been apparent throughout his life, and many of his doodlings included the boat. Although he owned several sailing vessels, the Victura was his beloved and part of his sailing life until he died.

"We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea- whether it is to sail of to watch it - we are going back from whence we came." ~ JFK
