Just over a week ago we posted this Latitude 38 archive photo on our Facebook page stating, “We often hear from readers who say, ‘I’ve got a copy of every issue of Latitude 38 stored in my house.'” So we’re offering a test for those who say they have a complete set of the magazines.
This shot is one of our favorite covers. We’ll select a winner of a Latitude 38 hat from those who can tell us which issue had this photo on the cover — and since you’re pulling out the old magazine, include the event, boat, photographer and sailors too.
“Amazing,” commented Sutter Schumaker when Rob Tryon got most of the answer correct without the help of a back issue in hand. But before we reveal his ‘best guess’ posted on Facebook, we’ll give you a chance to post the complete answer in the comments below.
And we agree with Ronnie Simpson’s comment, “Every time a Cal 40 surfs past Diamond Head Light an angel gets its wings.”
