Essential Reading for the Holiday Weekend

Get ’em while they’re hot. Hot off the press, that is. The just-published September Latitude is being distributed today throughout the Bay Area.

We certainly hope you plan to spend plenty of time out sailing this weekend. But when it’s time to kick back and decompress, we suggest you take in all the latest sailing news found inside the just-published September issue of Latitude 38 magazine.

Inside, you’ll find our usual mix of cruising tales from around the world, racing reports from a variety of venues, and all sorts of West Coast-centric nautical news within our Sightings section. A few examples are: An in-depth account of surviving a hurricane in mid-ocean, an update on the construction of San Francisco Bay’s new tall ship, and a progress report from 72-year-old Webb Chiles on singlehanding around the globe aboard a Moore 24. 

In this issue you’ll also find our recap report on the 2014 Pacific Puddle Jump, and mini-profiles of entrants in October’s 21st Baja Ha-Ha Rally. 

The Latitude 38 office will be closed on Monday for Labor Day, and ‘Lectronic Latitude will take a break until Wednesday. In the meantime, we hope you have fun out on the water. But keep it safe, and remember that extra marine patrols will be on the lookout for BUIs on this holiday weekend. While you’re out and about, don’t forget to pick up a Latitude at your favorite marine retailer. It will take a few days for magazines to arrive in Southern California, the Pacific Northwest and Hawaii, but remember: You can always get your Latitude fix online for free. (The September issue will be available online later this afternoon.)
