Berkeley Marina and BYC co-hosted an inaugural Winterfest and lighted boat parade on December 9, its numbers no doubt augmented by sailors in the BYC Midwinters.

Fireworks added to the festivities in Berkeley at dusk on December 9.


The Latitude 38 office will be closed all next week, but the January issue plus the 2018 Northern California Sailing Schedule and YRA Calendar will be distributed on Friday, December 29. Happy Holidays to all our readers!
