We wish all our readers, and sailors across the country a safe and relaxing weekend. This year more than ever we need to take time out to reflect and relax. So we’re joining the nation in taking a three-day holiday weekend and will be back with our regular ‘Lectronic Latitude on Monday.

Although we’ll be missing the usual parades, barbecues and fireworks, we can certainly enjoy a weekend on the water with our immediate households whether family, friends or both. If you’re sailing today or this weekend, or any time for that matter, take a quick look at this reminder from National Boating Association before you go: The Safe Boating Campaign.

And if you happen to capture a great sailing moment while you’re out there, send your story and photo to [email protected].

Nothing Better Than Beer Can Racing
Well, summer's here! Some of us are working from home, and others of us have lots of free time for sailing. With everything that has gone down, there's still nothing better than an evening of summer beer can racing on San Francisco Bay.
July Latitude Out Now
We made it! Summer has come. We're half way to Christmas. And despite this year's unusual (to say the least) national and global upheaval we've pulled together and produced a great edition of Latitude 38 magazine for your reading pleasure — and ours!
