Crew Party Tonight!
April 5 - Golden Gate Yacht Club, SF
Don't miss the Latitude 38 annual
spring Crew Party. There will be all sorts of folks there looking
for crew, be it for recreational sailing on the Bay, racing on
the Bay, cruising down the coast, doing the Ha-Ha, or even sailing
across oceans. And naturally there will be folks looking to crew.
While we can't guarantee success, many have used the Crew Parties
as springboards for local and international sailing opportunities.
For directions and more info, see www.latitude38.com/crewlist/Crew.html or call us at (415) 383-8200.
Photo of the Day
April 5 - Paradise Village, Nuevo Vallarta
Today's Photo of the Day is of Jack Muir,
a sculptor from Montana, taking a flying leap out of the dragon's
mouth at Paradise Village in Nuevo Vallarta. If you look closely,
you can see that Jack, the owner of the Sabre 402 Tambourine,
is holding up the class and overall trophies for last weekend's
Banderas Bay Regatta in Mexico.
Tom Jones' Liberty 458 Charissa from San Mateo fired bullets in all
three races to capture Division 6, despite the fact that she was heavily
laden with 12 cases of wine. Jones loves the Banderas Bay conditions
so much that he takes 'The Couch' sailing four to five times a week.
Crew 2, a Capri 37, nearly crashes while reaching up
to try to steal the wind from Bright Star, a Jeanneau 40.
Derigo, a Napa-based Catalina/Morgan 440,
rounds the weather mark with two other boats in ideal conditions.
Chicas rule to weather! The Mexican women's team took honors
in the Capri 37 class. They probably would have won the
$1,000 prize in the boat parade, but as their skipper explained,
"We're Mexicans, so we didn't show up until the parade was over."
Yeah, the photo is a bit blurry, but at least it gives you an idea
of the perfect setting for the awards ceremony.
