Sailing is awesome.

For more than 40 years Latitude 38 has covered the world of sailing through the eyes of the West Coast sailor. We’ve provided sailors the connections, stories and inspiration from our sailing community, and kept you informed by reporting the good news and bad news, insights, entertainment, fun activities and antics from sailors near and far.

As we adapt to shifting winds we're asking for your financial support. If you have the ability, enjoy sailing and the work of Latitude 38,  your contributions will help and be appreciated.
