Just in time for the New Year, the January issue of Latitude 38 will hit all the usual places today. We review the top stories of 2009 in ‘The Year in Review’, hear the Coast Guard’s side of the story regarding the loss of the Catalina 36 JoJo — which we reported on in the December 2 ‘Lectronic Latitude — learn the basics of cruising the South Pacific, join in the fun of the Banderas Bay Regatta, and, of course, pay our respects to the great Roy Disney. Get yours in time for the weekend, and have a terrific New Year!
