July ‘Latitude 38’ and Mystery Boat Launch on Friday

The launch of our July issue, on Friday, will include a story on the mystery boat below, which is out for its first cruise in the Pacific Northwest after a 19-month restoration. It’s a boat that’s lived several lives, sailed many miles, and been resurrected several times to keep her sailing. She looks stunning after her recent renovation. Pick up our July issue on Friday to enjoy the story of this boat’s renewal, along with many other stories from West Coast sailors.

There are so many plastic classics sailing among us today that were built in the ’60s and ’70s, and  that have been lovingly restored many times so they can continue to do what they do best. The July issue also brings a story of the Coronado 35 Firecracker’s cruise in the Delta.

July is also the month of Bay View Boat Club’s 37th annual Plastic Classic Regatta, inviting all classes from the ’60s through ’98 to race in the South Bay off Pier 54 and then to hear music, party, and dance at the club on Saturday, July 22.

It’s looking like a great month ahead and we hope to see you on the water. When you do get off the dock, remember to take some photos of your sail and send them to [email protected] for the next month’s Sailagram album!
