September Issue Finds New Golden Ticket Winner

Tiburon sailor Stephen Spoja is the newest Latitude 38 Golden Ticket winner. Stephen picked up his September issue at Modern Sailing in Sausalito and was surprised to find the ticket inside.

Stephen has sailed and raced on San Fransisco Bay for 50 years, and for the past seven years he’s been a sailing instructor at Modern Sailing.

Stephen has asked for a blue Latitude 38 hat. The next question is, will it reach him in Italy or will it be waiting for him when he returns to Tiburon?

Whatever the Weather
The only constant is change, and this weekend was a perfect example. It started as another perfect , sunny September weekend, shifted to a stormy Sunday, and finished under a clearing rainbow.
