There were more photos of RJ in Dennis's Splendour years collection than of Natalie, so I had many RJ photos left over. Here are two photos of RJ with some friends. Dennis can't recall who these people with RJ are. The Wagners didn't always invite just celebrities for pleasure cruises. They shared their yacht with many friends. Natalie liked inviting the owners of her favorite restaurant aboard. Although Dennis was the official skipper of the Splendour, note the title on RJ's jacket. (Captain). Dennis, when aboard Splendour, usually called RJ "Chief" or "Boss" ... RJ was an experienced and adept yachter. Here, he stands with his friends as far forward as you can possibly get upon the Splendour.
