Yes, folks, it’s on again! We’re excited to announce that Latitude 38‘s Crew List Party will be held on the evening of September 1 at Spaulding Marine Center in Sausalito. Join us and connect with other sailors, find crew, or get onto a boat!
Several vendors and industry partners will be set up inside the building to answer your questions about cruising and heading south to Mexico. You’ll also have the opportunity to chat with local partners and sailing groups who want to help you get sailing on the Bay. San Francisco Sailing Science Center will be on hand with an entertaining and educational exhibit. And of course Spaulding Marine Center is a treasure trove of Bay Area sailing history.
The rest of the event (the mingling) will be outside, in the boat yard, where we can take advantage of the fresh air. But remember, this is Sausalito and often cool, so layer up! The Casablanca Mediterranean Food Truck will be serving delicious foods from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., and the Spaulding crew and volunteers will host the bar, with all proceeds going to benefit their education programs.
Prior to the main event we’ll be holding our annual cruising seminar for Baja Ha-Ha sailors and cruisers preparing to head south. Fito Espinoza from Hotel Coral and Neil Shroyer from Marina de La Paz will be on hand to give an hour-long cruising seminar from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m., followed with a Q&A session from 5 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Our crew parties are geared toward bringing the sailing community together and helping people find sailing opportunities for cruising, racing, or daysailing. The Fall Crew List party is ideal for boat owners seeking crew who want to head south to Mexico, or crew who want to find a boat to join. It’s also well suited for folks looking for midwinter race crew or anyone who just wants to sail the Bay. Many sailors have met at a Latitude 38 crew party and forged long-lasting friendships and sailing connections. In case you’re on the fence about coming to the party, check out the wrap-up from last year’s event held at the Bay Model.
The party starts at 6 p.m., tickets are $10.
Admission for the Mexico Cruising seminar is $10, or $20 for both.
Each skipper and first mate registered for the 2022 Baja Ha-Ha gets free entry to the Fall Crew List Party and Mexico Cruising seminar. Admission includes free munchies, entry to door-prize raffle, and a sailing slide show.
