Oops! We Did It Again

Though we at Latitude 38 do our very best to be perfect, we are, after all, as human as anyone. In April’s Calendar, we listed a Sailing Skills & Seamanship course offered by the USCG Auxiliary for April 8 through May 27. That’s where our crack journalistic accuracy ended. The class, taught by Flotilla 17 instructors, will be held at South Beach Harbor, not Yerba Buena Island, from 7-9 p.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays. The USCGA offers low-cost courses that really pack a punch. This course, for example, will teach you basic navigation, weather, communications, knots and much more for just $75, plus you’ll get discounts on safety and nav gear. That value is tough to beat. The first class meets this Wednesday, so if you’d like to join, contact Dave Talton ASAP.
