Before it ever dawned on me and by extension my immediate family, team and anyone who cared to listen on Twitter, that a runway show production is not remotely easy peasy (not even the lemon squeazy variety), I was aboard Eilean. Physically and figuratively; flying off the Minorcan port and promptly out of 4G (and IG) reach, her ivory sails trimmed neat and without a care in the world.

She is as wistful as she is unyielding, like a Leo Tolstoy heroine. Or Katniss Everdeen, for y’all millennials.

And boy, she’s one smooth ride. These noodle-legs can attest so. Granted, some other limbs were to be cuffed in seasickness acupressure bands after one particularly inky risotto and 5-minute attempt at screen-time.

Poster-child of Officine Panerai, born of William Fife III in 1936, stage of Duran Duran’s ‘Rio’ (ask your parents), Eilean had been under care of six owners until a Florentine watchmaker and now Officine Panerai CEO Angelo Bonati took her under his wings, and restored over 40k hours in true watchmaking meticulousness. I boarded with Luminor 2 strapped on my left wrist, in blissful ignorance of any sailing terminology, much less mechanics of making a boat ‘go’ (Regatta is type of cheese, yes/no). We skated the Balearic sea like sails on a little island, chasing Spain’s September sun, and anchored for a swim and lunch near a particularly handsome cliff.

Park & Cube was a guest of Officine Panerai, but all views & opinions my own.
