We made it! Summer has come. We’re halfway to Christmas. And despite this year’s unusual (to say the least) national and global upheaval, we’ve pulled together and produced a great edition of Latitude 38 magazine for your reading pleasure — and ours!
This month we welcome our newest magazine distributors, Englund Marine. Remember to pick up your copy when you stop by their store in Eureka.
Here’s a preview of what’s inside the July issue:
The Perfect Day Sail
There is method to the divine madness of sailing San Francisco Bay. One way to learn it is to throw the sails up and blunder around for about five years until you figure it out. This can be fun if you are young and looking for thrills. However, for those of a more mature or efficient nature, there is a better way, and you’re holding it in your hands.
Max Ebb: The Sound of Sailing
This was my first attempt at singlehanded spinnaker, and everything was going fine until my first singlehanded spinnaker jibe.
“I need just two more inches! Just two more inches.”
I looked back at the cockpit, but there was no one there.
And of course, we have included all the regular features that you love, and stories that will keep you entertained all month long:
- Letters: Advice for a Sailing Newbie; A Singlehanded Farallones Report; Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, and Mayan.

- Wednesdays with Patita.
- A fantastic guide on Dine-Out Cruising.
