Latitude 38 July Calendar
Dear Readers — We've included here all of the events that we believe were still on each host's schedule as of June 18. As the shelter-in-place orders shift and our society gradually reopens, event plans change weekly. We ask organizers to please send updates to email@example.com. We'll post changes here.

July 1, 1980 — From a Sightings piece titled webb chiles is still alive: "Webb Chiles left San Diego a year ago December to do another solo circumnavigation, this on Chidiock Tichborne, an 18-ft open boat. That's pretty radical stuff. For 6,000 miles to Suva everything went as well as could be expected, but on May 10th Chidiock hit an object in the water, pitch-poled, and filled with water. Chiles scrambled into his inflatable dinghy. For the next two weeks he feasted on a few crackers, part of a packet of freeze-dried food, and a few sips of water.
