Sailors Partied Into the Night at Latitude 38’s Baja Ha-Ha Fall Crew Party

After a foggy start to the day, Thursday afternoon rolled into a comfortable, two-layer-only evening for Latitude 38‘s Baja Ha-Ha Fall Crew List Party at Spaulding Marine Center in Sausalito. More than 250 sailors, sailors-to-be, exhibitors and friends turned out for a night of fun, learning, laughter and camaraderie, forging new friendships and rekindling old. We couldn’t have magicked a better night for such a gathering, and we hope all who attended had as much fun as we did!

We have loads of photos and lots of great stories to share, but not enough time, or space, right now. But we knew you’ll all be wanting to see the pics, so here’s a little peek into last night’s event:
