November 7 - Malta
Per Curtiss writes, "Whether on my Cal 31 out of Marina del Rey, or on a trip, I always have a copy of Latitude 38 on hand. The enclosed photos were taken recently in the Maltese Islands, in the ancient port cities of Valletta, on the island of Malta, at the famous 'Barbary Coast', and Mgarr harbor on neighboring Gozo island."
Above: Latitude 38 visits Mgarr Harbor on Gozo Island as a guest of SoCal sailor Per Curtiss. The three photos at right are of the Barbary Coast.
