Newest Latitude Magazine Hits the Docks Today

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.

When you pack your gear to sail on this 4th of July weekend remember to include the new issue of Latitude 38.

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.
