Maps of the South Pacific inspired the look of this map. I reversed the land-water "reality" so some of the lakes of Minneapolis appear as islands.
The map's elaborate title cartouche contains the invitation copy flanked by the main course.
The guest list included only people who have "I'd rather be sailing" bumper stickers affixed to their land-yachts.

They all were members of the local yacht club invited to a post regatta picnic. The highways are shown as the routes of numbered boats.
