Happy Thanksgiving!

A meme that’s been trending on Facebook over the last couple days shows a woman pushing a shopping cart with the caption, "Black Friday: Because only in America do people trample others for sales exactly one day after being thankful for what they already have." We think it’s worth paying a few bucks more for Christmas gifts later to avoid the nightmare that is Black Friday and go sailing instead. The Bay Area forecast for Friday looks pleasant, with scattered clouds and a high of 68. Pack some turkey sandwiches and be thankful you’re on a boat.

Speaking of being thankful, Latitude‘s World Headquarters will be closed tomorrow and Friday so we can spend time with our families (but you can bet we’ll be on the water at some point over the weekend). We’ll see you back here on Monday!

"On November 12, we had our dinghy — with outboard motor attached — stolen while at anchor at Isla de Piedra outside of Mazatlan," report John Gratton and Linda Hill of the San Francisco-based Hans Christian 33 Nakia.
