One thing that keeps us motivated here at Latitude 38 World Headquarters is often hearing compliments from readers about how much they love our content. So thanks to all of you who’ve chimed in lately.

As our way of saying ‘thank you’. . . well, we’ve just published issue 467, which is being distributed throughout the greater Bay Area as we write this, and will reach distribution points in SoCal, the Pacific Northwest and Hawaii in a few days. A reminder, though, that this and all recent issues of Latitude can also be read online and/or downloaded for free from the website.

In our features section this month we recap the Bay Area’s first three offshore races of the season, introduce you to a wildly diverse group of Pacific Puddle Jumpers leaving from Panama, and discuss smart strategies for equipping your boat with safety gear. Max Ebb gives his unique perspective on classic sailing films. 

In our Sightings section we introduce you to America’s oldest solo nonstop circumnavigator and to dock neighbors-turned-lovers who now intend to circumnavigate, and we recap the record-breaking Newport to Ensenada Race and the Clipper Round the World Race’s rough and rowdy leg from China, plus much more.

As always, Letters is chock full of insightful commentary, the Racing Sheet reports on a wide range of recent races, World of Chartering gives food for thought on sailing getaways, and Changes in Latitudes offers firsthand reports from cruisers all over the world. 

So, pick up your copy today or check us out online. Happy reading!
