We’ll See You in Seattle

As every Pacific Northwest sailor undoubtedly knows, the massive Seattle Boat Show begins this week and runs through February 6 at CenturyLink Field (plus in-the-water boat viewing at South Lake Union). If you’ve never attended, let us confirm that this is one of the most impressive shows in the country, largely because the Northwest has an enormous boating community, and many boats of various types are manufactured there.

The owners of the SC50 Bay Wolf took a sabbatical from their SF Bay charter operations to do the Ha-Ha rally last year.

We’re happy to say that Latitude 38 has many dedicated readers up north, many of whom eventually participate in our Baja Ha-Ha rally to Mexico and/or Pacific Puddle Jump rally to French Polynesia.

With that fact in mind, we’ll be giving four seminars on those events this weekend, so if you come to the show, please come by and check out our programs:

• Baja Ha-Ha How-To — 12 noon, both Saturday, 1/30, and Sunday, 1/31

• Tahiti and the Pacific Puddle Jump — 1 p.m., both Saturday, 1/30, and Sunday, 1/31

The loosely structured Pacific Puddle Jump rally draws participants from all over the world, such as the Dutch boat Suluk, which made the crossing last year.

We hope to see you there!
