Arriving just in time so you can use it to procrastinate on doing your weekend chores, the June issue of Latitude 38 is being delivered throughout the Greater Bay Area. 

Why are these sailors decked out like naughty pirates? Pick up a June Latitude and find out.

Inside, you’ll find our typical eclectic mix of local and international news about racing, cruising and recreational sailing. Highlights include coverage of the Great Vallejo Race, an overview of high-tech personal safety devices, mini-profiles of all Singlehanded TransPac participants, and cruising reports from all over the world.

In our news section, Sightings, we offer a mix of topics from the silly to the sad, from the upbeat to the downright depressing; notably, an Opening Day report from a merry band of piratical wannabes, a tragically injured cruiser’s return to Mexico, the T-boning of a classic woodie, a blind sailor’s shattered dreams on Kona, and an entrepreneurial sailing project that sells watermelons boat-to-boat for the benefit of disadvantaged children.

What’s up with all the watermelons? Find out in this month’s Sightings section.
