March Latitude Hits the Docks

We think you’ll find the content of our March issue to be as colorful as its cover (shot during the recent 3B Fiasco).

Even if your only goal today is to recover from too much Fat Tuesday celebrating yesterday, we hope you’ll carve out some time to pick up a copy of the just-published March issue of Latitude 38 — we think you’ll enjoy it. (See distribution points here or read online here)

Inside, you’ll find our usual smorgasbord of sailing news from the West Coast and beyond, including racing recaps, profiles of both sailors and boat projects, and cruising reports from around the globe. 

This month’s feature articles include a salute to the volunteers who built the nearly-completed brigantine Matthew Turner, a recap of the Three Bridge Fiasco, arguments for taking it slow in the South Pacific, a celebration of the 16th annual Zihuatanejo Sailfest, and Max Ebb offering tips on how to succeed at captain-and-crew mixers. (Speaking of which, Latitude 38‘s next Crew List Party will be held Wednesday March 8 at the Golden Gate YC, 6 to 9 p.m. (See full details here.)

As a new month begins, we’re now ramping up for our April issue — a very special one, as it will celebrate Latitude‘s 40th year of publishing. If you’ve been a longtime Latitude addict, we’d welcome your thoughts on this milestone.
