Congratulations to Nicole Miller, who won our raffle of a Jim Dewitt original painting at last week’s Boat Show.
Thanks to everyone who entered the raffle. We raised nearly $500 for Bay Area youth sailing programs.
And thanks to the maestro himself, the indefatigable DeWitt, for his generous donation to both youth sailing, and to Latitude 38’s April cover for the last three years. There is no Wikipedia page on our favorite Bay Area artist, not that he needs one. “As a young man in 1963, Jim won the North American Men’s Sailing Championship,” his website says. “In 1992, he was recognized as the top American Marine Artist by the official America’s Cup Gallery in San Diego. In 2013, Jim was named Artist in Residence by the Golden Gate Yacht Club, host of the historic 34th America’s Cup in San Francisco.”
