We hope the three-day Memorial Day weekend will allow you to spend lots of time out on the water — in addition to spending some quality time with the June issue of Latitude 38.
We made a special effort to get it printed before the weekend, and it is being distributed today in the Greater Bay Area — also available to read online right now (or download for free).
Inside, you’ll find our usual mix of sailing news from the West Coast and beyond. In Sightings, we celebrate the return of 70-year-old solo circumnavigator Jeff Hartjoy, offer tips on Delta cruising, recap the America’s Cup World Series in New York, describe opportunities for youth sailing on the Bay, detail how to sail from Fiji to the West Coast without bashing your brains out, and explore sailing on the Seine.
Our June issue feature articles include a photo-heavy report on the Great Vallejo Race, profiles of all Singlehanded TransPac entrants, and our attempt to solve Battery Befuddlement, while Max Ebb explains why there’s nothing as expensive as a cheap boat.
The Racing Sheet details both local and far-flung races, World of Chartering focuses on Tonga, and Changes in Latitudes shares reports from Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, the Marquesas and elsewhere.
So don’t miss your chance to grab a copy while it’s hot off the press. Click here for a complete list of distribution outlets. (SoCal, Pacific Northwest and Hawaii distributors will receive shipments in a few days.)
Have a fabulous weekend — but be safe out there!
