Latitude 38’s ‘Biggest Fan’ Finds Golden Ticket

Mike … is a great fan of Latitude 38, perhaps our “biggest fan” according to Joan Mellon. Joan tells us, “Mike picks up his Latitude 38, faithfully, every month at Santa Cruz Yacht Club or West Marine. There is no getting his attention when he sits down and begins to read cover to cover!” The winning ticket was in the February issue that Mike collected at West Marine.

When we asked to know more, Mike wrote, “We sail the Catalina 320, La Vida, although not frequently enough, cruising the Bay and a near-annual trip to the magnificent, warm Delta.” He also told us, “Say hi to the folks at Latitude 38. You guys do a great job.” Thanks Mike!

We sent Mike a yellow Latitude 38 hat, which we imagine he will wear proudly aboard La Vida on his next sail, and perhaps everywhere else too!

If you want to find your own Golden Ticket, keep reading Latitude 38. The tickets are tucked inside random copies of the magazine. We don’t know how many, or when, but we know they’re out there, somewhere.

You can pick up the new March issue from your favorite or nearest distributor. Or, to be sure of getting a copy each month (because you never know when you might get stuck at home for 30 days, or go everywhere but to a place where you can find Latitude 38), subscribe! We’ll send a copy of every new issue directly to your mailbox.
