Why Aren’t You Sailing Right Now?

Thank you so much for your readership, Latitude Nation. 

But if you’re reading this, may we make a suggestion? Please stop reading this, and go sailing. That’s what we’re doing. We actually wrote this on Wednesday, and let the Internet do its automated thing so that we could stay away from the office, away from work, away from land . . .

This could be you.

Today, July 5, is not actually an official Latitude holiday. We are all taking a vacation day, so please don’t hear us preaching to you from the lofty perch of our paid-vacation day.

We will, however, reiterate points we often make: We all need more time to chill. And the world would be a better place if everyone was sailing. We’re doing our part — we hope that you’ll do yours.

If anyone needs a note from us to give to your boss, just let us know.

Preaching to the Choir?
The American Sailing Association wants to energize folks to start sailing by proclaiming this July the first-ever Learn to Sail Month. For every new sailing lesson purchased in July at one of their 350 certified schools nationwide, the ASA will make a donation to Sailors for the Sea and their mission to save the oceans.
