The 2021 Master Mariners Regatta held on May 30 attracted dozens of beautiful sailboats and their crews. All enjoyed the beautiful sunshine, healthy breezes and a good dose of friendly rivalry. And although we’ve already shared a story about the day, we were reminded that many sailors have personal memories associated with these grand old boats. Memo Gidley wrote to us about his life as a kid being raised around “passionate wooden boat builders and sailors” and the “feel, smell and taste of a classic wooden vessel …” (you can read his full letter in Latitude 38‘s July issue). Memo’s musings inspired us to share more of the fantastic photos that were taken across the Bay throughout the race.
Had enough? Never! Keep an eye out for July’s Latitude 38 for our Master Mariners feature story.
