A new year represents many things, among them that a fresh issue of Latitude 38 will be hitting your favorite pick-up spot at any moment, and that the 2012 Northern California Sailing Calendar & YRA Master Schedule is ready to help you plan your sailing schedule for the year. The Calendar includes much more than just dates and times of races. In it you'll also find maps of race courses, current info, equipment requirements, signal flag guides and much more — all in one place and all for free! Seriously, every boat — not just race boats — should have a copy aboard. 

In the January issue of Latitude, you'll find the final installment of the Season Champs, an interview with Bay Area Mini sailor Emma Creighton, reader reaction to Dennis Howard's forced abandonment of his Flicka, a youthful perspective on 'go small, go now', and about a million other juicy tidbits for your long holiday weekend — including our annual Year in Review article. To get the wheels of nostalgia turning, you'll find photos from a handful of the top sailing stories of the year below.

As 2011 comes to a close, our wish for our readers is for 2012 to be your best year ever.
