March Issue Out Today

Here are a few quotes from the March issue of Latitude 38, which is hitting newsstands as we write:

“In some terms, there’s never going to be a chance again to sail on multi-million dollar boats with some of your best friends in the world and no owner, no one paying the bills, and no one paying you. It was just us doing exactly what we wanted to do.” — David Liebengerg, Olympic hopeful

“We’re both so fortunate and lucky  to have visited a full range of different places. We’ve been able to do a lot of diverse sailing.” — Shanley McEntee, first mate, Sea Dragon

Eric Loss and Shanley McEntee anchor off the coast of Greenland aboard their 1980s-era French-built aluminum Pouvreau 42 cutter, Fleur Australe. Read all about this epic sailing couple in The Perfect Sailing Life, in the March issue.

“[This is] highly unconventional. But we’re unconventional people.” — Chris Welsh, owner, Cheyenne

“The Lemaire Channel was completely blocked with ice, so we sailed down the outside in the Southern Ocean. It’s a shame, because Lemaire Channel is one of the most spectacular things to see in that area.” — Paul Cayard, as quoted in Changes in Latitude. 

“Actually, [that’s] ventilation, not cavitation. Entrained air from above, like, the water surface, not a cavitation-induced vacuum. But it’s a common mistake.” — Lee Helm, naval architecture grad student from the Bay Area

“Oh crap! Now I’m going to be a caption contest contestant in Latitude 38!” — Jeff Duvall

Jeff Jorgensen and Dinah Goodsell, who work at Cruising Yachts at Marina Village in Alameda, were happy to see the new March issue of Latitude arrive. They said they’d be happy to have you stop by to pick one up!

Issue Number 501

While there may not be as much fanfare for our most recent issue compared to its round-numbered predecessor, that doesn’t make the March 2019 issue of Latitude any less special. We pour our heart and soul into every page, every month. We often joke and say that each issue of Latitude is our very favorite — only it’s not actually a joke. We really, really mean it.

Do we have amazing, awe-inspiring images of faraway locales in the March issue? Check.

In case you didn’t know, you can pick up an issue of Latitude at a gazillion different West Coast locations, all of which can be found here.

This month in Sightings, we talk about one of the Bay Area’s most famous summer personalities, Karl the Fog, seen here all but enveloping the Salesforce Tower.

And don’t forget, there are a few Golden Tickets, good for a $25 credit to our online store, stuffed into a few lucky issues of Latitude.

Also in this month’s Sightings, Hiro Iwamoto, foreground, and Doug Smith left California last month about the Island Packet 40 Dream Weaver on “The Voyage of Inspiration,” which is bound for Fukushima, Japan. Hiro is an accomplished blind sailor; Doug just learned to sail two years ago.

Thanks, as always, for choosing Latitude. We hope you enjoy number 501 as much as we enjoyed making it.
