Now, it’s your turn to decide who wins the coveted title of Bachelorette of 2013 – with a $5000 payout and her face on the cover of our January issue. Voting starts December 1, and runs through midnight on December 12. Log onto to cast your vote. One vote per person. Every vote counts (We have no electoral college at CH2).

Extra Special thanks to Klaus and Brigitte Gueldenpfennig who generously hosted our photo shoot on their 66’ Vicem Custom Sport Yacht, The Jackalope, handcrafted by Vicem Yachts in Tuzula, Turkey.
