Bay Area Sailors Are the Best: Here’s the Proof

Early this year, January in fact, we launched Sailagram — a new page to showcase Bay Area sailors doing what they love the most: sailing. Eight months later, we are astounded at the enthusiasm of the contributors, and the variety of photos that are submitted each month. If you’re one of the sailors who have sent us photos, you probably remember to look at the page each month to see not only your own submission, but everyone else’s as well.

And if you’re not a contributor, and you don’t remember to look, or perhaps you’ve missed the page entirely, here are a few of our favorite photos from the first half of the year.

Whoever said sailors have to wear nautical gear? The Steampunk crew of the 42-ft Pilothouse Cutter Cetacea clearly didn’t get the memo.

We’ll be sharing another month’s worth of Bay Area sailing pics at the end of this month. So if you want your photo to be on the page, email us at: photos@latitude38.com. Remember to include your name and a brief description or caption.

See you on the ‘gram!

As the channel narrowed and the wind picked up, I was driving, and we had our first broach, which turned into our second broach, and then our third.
