The April Issue is No Joke

It’s no joke, the April issue of Latitude 38 is hitting the streets today! Our annual boat show issue is packed to the gunwales with great stuff, starting with the Strictly Sail Pacific show guide tucked neatly within the pages of the magazine. Sightings offers a touching tribute to fallen sailor Craig Williams, a report on the Banderas Bay Regatta, an update on offshore racing requirements, and a bizarre epilogue to the theft and subsequent grounding of the Oyster 82 Darling.

In anticipation of this summer’s America’s Cup goings-on, we interviewed AC warriors and Bay Area-products John Kostecki, tactician for Oracle Team USA, and Paul Cayard, CEO of Artemis Racing. AC racing has inspired many young people to try sailing, so you’ll also find our annual ‘how to get your kids off their butts and into boats’ article. Has all the interest in sailing — or maybe a walk through the boat show — inspired you to spend some time ‘simply messing about in boats’? If so, check out ‘DIY Boat Projects for Any Budget’ for some fun ideas. Farther afield, we profile several ‘Californians in the Caribbean’, as well as the first batch of Pacific Puddle Jumpers.

No foolin’, you’ll want to check out this issue — the online version will be posted later today.
