Latitude 38’s 45th Anniversary Trivia Contest Closes Soon!

At the start of April we posted a trivia contest to coincide with Latitude 38‘s 45th anniversary. Yes! The West Coast’s favorite sailing magazine has been in print for nearly half a century! We recognize that some of our readers weren’t even born when the first issue went to press, but to make sure everyone has an equal chance at taking a prize, we’ve included hints for each question.

Here are some sample questions, sans hints:

1. What was the first full column where Max Ebb and Lee Helm appeared?

2. For Women’s History Month: When was Latitude 38’s first “Women’s Issue?”

3. Who is on the cover of the second-ever issue of Latitude 38 (spring 1977), and what boat is he sailing?

4. What still-active San Francisco Bay race boat design turns 100 this year?

To see the included hints, and the remaining questions, go to the 45th Anniversary Trivia Contest page. There you will find everything you need to answer the questions and enter the drawing for a prize pack with swag and a year-long subscription to Latitude 38.

Trivia Contest ends at 5 p.m. on April 30. Winners will be announced on May 10, and the answers will be published in ‘Lectronic Latitude and Latitude‘s social media pages.

1970s covers
When you’ve completed your entry in the Trivia Contest, take a stroll through the archives. It’s kind of neat to see how the covers have changed over the decades. From the home page, scroll down to “Back Issues.” Start at 1977 and work your way forward …
