Use the Map to Get Lost at Copperfield’s Books

Like a good book or magazine, sailing is a great escape. Getting lost in the pages of a great book or great stories in a magazine can transport you from a frenetic world to the serenity or adventure of the high seas. And you can find it as close to home as Copperfield’s Books at 1200 Fourth St. in San Rafael. Copies of the best sailing magazine, Latitude 38, are right by the front door near their magazine rack, brimming with great titles.

We stopped by on Saturday, when the store was packed with readers, parents, kids and many others looking to get lost in the pages of a good read.

You can also find Latitude 38 at Book Passage in Corte Madera, Sausalito Books by the Bay next door to Marotta Yachts (which also has magazines) in Sausalito, at the Sausalito and Tiburon libraries, and Builder’s Book Source on Fourth Street in Berkeley. Of course, all your favorite waterfront haunts have them, too — your harbormaster’s office, yacht club, sailmaker and, hopefully, anywhere West Coast sailors gather. If you have a suggestion of where we can distribute magazines, send an email here.

Our distribution map shows Copperfield’s is up the street from the San Rafael Yacht Club, which is at the end of the recently dredged San Rafael Canal.

The current March 2023 issue has stories on David Crosby and Mayan, Bill Erkelens, the Three Bridge Fiasco, Youth Sailing by Heather Breaux, cruising in the South Pacific and much more.

Yes, the whole magazine is available to read online, but as good as it is, it’s just not the same as holding a copy in your hands. The magazine looks much better on a coffee table than an iPad, and having a real magazine is much closer to having the mainsheet in your teeth and the tiller in your hand.

Our distribution map will help you get “lost” in the pages of a book or magazine. We hope you can use our map to get lost today.

    I am 83, mobile, still riding my bike (albeit an ebike) but not doing much sailing. As an ex – sailor, boatyard owner as well as owning a dealership I still have the famous nautical disease called sailing, and can get my daily fix from Latitude 38. Thank you Latitude!

Springing Forward
Yes, it's still raining, and yes, the snow is still falling, but eventually, the weather will catch up with the season and we'll start to see more sunny days and higher temperatures (we hope).
