Here in the Bay Area it’s due to be cold, cold, cold for the next couple of days, so we assume only heavily dressed diehards will be out sailing. As an alternative, we suggest you get your sailing fix by picking up a copy of the January Latitude 38. It’s hot off the press, and chock full of the latest sailing and cruising news, plus features on one-design Season Champs, San Diego’s globe-trotting Houlihan clan, the Year in Review and much more. If you’re not near one of our many West Coast distribution sites, you can also download the entire mag as a PDF or eBook, or simply read it online . . . all for free!
Be aware also that today’s the day when we also distribute our annual Northern California Sailing Calendar and YRA Master Schedule — available for free at all Latitude distribution points and also online (available this afternoon). Even if you don’t race often, it’s a great idea to have a copy on board, as the Calendar includes charts of all Central Bay buoys, listings of out-of-the-area events, plus all sorts of other useful info.
Here at Latitude World Headquarters we’re busy sorting out our editorial plans for the coming year. Naturally, we’ll do our best to bring you the top sailing stories from the West Coast and beyond. What are our sailing resolutions for 2013? We’ll think about that over the weekend and let you know Monday. We will be publishing ‘Lectronic Latitude Monday, December 31, but not on Wednesday, January 2.
However you spend this wintery weekend, we hope it includes some deep relaxation in the company of family and/or good friends.
