Lucky Day in Inverness

You never know. Remember years ago how cool it was when you bought a box of Cap’n Crunch and you’d reach in to find a plastic dinosaur or a fake tattoo? For the past few months, our readers have been experiencing something similar when they pick up a copy of Latitude 38.

Mike Wing of Kentfield stopped by his favorite sailing club — the Inverness Yacht Club on Tomales Bay — to pick up the magazine when out fell one of our ‘Lucky Day’ notes. He’d won a Latitude 38 T-shirt or hat.

Inverness Yacht Club is one of many great places to sail a Day Sailer and pick up your copy of Latitude 38.

Mike has been reading Latitude 38 for over 20 years while sailing his 1963 O’Day Daysailer on Tomales Bay — it’s quite a coincidence, since we just featured Tomales Bay in the September issue.

We’re also partial to the old fleet, because builder George O’Day lived down the street in Massachusetts when we were young and his son, who was a bit older, used to buy us beer in high school when we weren’t quite 18. Our family still owns the Daysailer’s big sister, a 1964 Rhodes 19, on the coast of Maine.

That’s Amoore. Joy Dahlgren’s Moore 24 hailing from Royal Victoria YC prepares to hoist the spinnaker.
Originally from the eastern Sierra, Peter Whitney has been a friend of Latitude’s since he was aboard the Freeport 41 ketch Country Gentleman for the boat-destroying Cabo storm of 1982.
