About this photo of Black Witch, Latitude contributor John ‘Woody’ Skoriak writes: "I took this photo from the deck of Seaward years ago. My friend Rich Hastie owned Black Witch then; he completely restored her. We set up for this photo, for him to sail by me on Seaward, as we went out the channel with Hurricane Gulch in the background, later in the day when the light was best and it hit the sails just right."

Because Latitude 38’s office is located in a ‘Halloween neighborhood’, we’ll be closing at 4 p.m. today so that our staff can escape before the streets are haunted by diminutive zombies and ghouls.

November is looming and thus so is the midwinter racing season. Blessed as we are on the West Coast, we just keep on sailing all year round, while boats in other parts of the country are already hauled out and shrink-wrapped for the winter.
