Latitude 38 Celebrates 45 Years of Sailing News and Stories

Everyone loves a celebration, and this month we’re celebrating the 45th anniversary of Latitude 38 sailing magazine. The first issue hit the docks in April 1977, and we’ve been bringing you a new issue month after month ever since! We owe much of our longevity to you, our salty readers, our loyal advertisers, and our worldwide community of sailors who continue to raise their sails and celebrate life on the water. ⛵️

To commemorate this outstanding event, for the entire month of April we are hosting a Latitude 38 trivia contest: What month and year did we publish our 500th issue? In what issue does Racing Sheet first appear? What year was the first ’Lectronic Latitude digital newsletter published?

Latitude 38 45th anniversary

Follow the link to the Latitude 38 45th Anniversary Trivia Contest and submit your answers to these questions, and more, for a chance to win a prize pack with swag and a year-long subscription to Latitude 38. (We do give hints, so even our editors should be able to answer them all correctly.)

Trivia Contest ends at 5 p.m. on April 30. Winners will be announced on May 10, and the answers will be published in the May issue.

Plus, this Saturday we will be hosting an in-person 45th-anniversary celebration at the Spring Fling show in Alameda, hosted by Svendsen’s Marine & Industrial Supply. Stop by our booth between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m., have a brew on us, and meet some of the crew. It’s one way in which we can say, “THANK YOU!”

Thanks for reading and supporting sailing for 45 wonderful years!
