It's almost summer. That means sun, sea, skies and lots of fun... For the rich, it's taking off in style and sailing the blues away aboard a luxury yacht.

MONDAY MAGAZINE's Edition V features another of our workwatsa adventure wherein we hailed off to Subic for a dose of luxurious nautical spree. Aboard Apa Ongpin's Isla Yacht, we cruised the open sea, braved the tides, embraced the wind, toiled under the sun - and the result was a lifestyle shoot (entitled "NAUTICAL NUMBERS") that the whole team could be proud of!

See how MONDAY worked summer's utmost fashion trend - nautical - as you prep your way to this year's ultimate holiday getaway:
