Easy, Breezy Islands of the Caribbean, namely the British Virgins, are the backdrop of our annual swimsuit issue. Swimwear that Anne Bonny never dreamed of in those islands' piratical heyday adorns bonny creatures photographed by John Zimmerman in settings selected by Associate Editor Jule Campbell. Senior Writer Robert F. Jones climbs up to a rain forest on the highest mountain of the verdant island cluster, dives down to the underwater remnants of a 19th-century ship, samples the Virgins' hotels and reports on the burgeoning business of bareboat yacht chartering.
