Three New Golden Ticket Winners!

While we’ve been busy putting together Latitude‘s monthly magazines, readers have been picking up issues and finding Golden Tickets inside! This week we heard from two winners who found their tickets in the December issue. We also caught up with Armand, who discovered his ticket in the September issue.

Armand holds a US Coast Guard Master’s license. He and his wife Cynthia have a 35-ft CHB trawler and are members at the Diablo Sail and Power Squadron and the Benicia Yacht Club.

“We are avid boaters,” Armand told us. “We have been to many marinas and yacht clubs from the Golden Gate Bridge to Rio Vista, as well as from Drake’s Bay to Monterey.

“Also, as a veteran of the Coast Guard, I’m a huge supporter of safe boating. As such, I’ve had several letters published in Latitude 38 and am very supportive of how Latitude 38 promotes boating.”

Armand looks pretty happy with his win. Just put his name into the search bar at the top of any Latitude 38 webpage and you’ll find his name pop up many times.

Larry Haynie picked up his Golden Ticket when he picked up his December issue at Point San Pablo Yacht Club. Larry hasn’t shared his sailing story with us yet, but when he does, we’ll let you know.

We do know that Larry has claimed a Latitude 38 hat or T-shirt as his prize.

Our third winner, Steve Rienhart, picked up his December Latitude 38 at West Marine in San Carlos.

“Friday was my lucky day,” Steve wrote after collecting his magazine. “[I] first discovered that I was a runner-up in the Caption Contest(!), and a dozen or so pages later found out that I’d won a Latitude 38 T-shirt.”

The look of surprise on Steve’s face is genuine!

Steve is a member of Encinal Yacht Club and owns the Antrim 27 Cascade and the Mercury California Zephyr. He describes himself as a “lifelong Bay Area sailor and racer” who knows a lot of the old-school Latitude 38 folks “such as John Arndt and certainly miss the late great Rob Moore.”

Congratulations to all our winners. We look forward to seeing you out on the Bay sporting your new Latitude 38 gear. And for everyone who hasn’t found a Golden Ticket with which to claim an item of L38 logo wear, keep reading; you never know when the Golden Ticket will turn up. (Neither do we.)

If you don’t want to wait, go to our store and purchase whatever you want now, and while you’re at it, you can get gifts for all your family and friends. Christmas shopping sorted!

"Does anyone know the true history of those pieces of yarn we poke through the luffs of our jibs to determine whether the sails are in trim, stalled, or luffing?
