Joyon Nurses IDEC Toward Home

By Rob Grant | January 11, 2008

Francis Joyon’s trip up the Atlantic Ocean so far has been anything but an easy home stretch for his non-stop solo round-the-world record attempt. After battling the South Atlantic high, which whittled his pace down to as little as 139 miles one day, Joyon once again seemed to be reeling in the miles toward the…

Hope for the Best

"I just returned from Ecuador after answering a Crew Wanted ad posted by a woman skipper," Dave Hohman wrote to us in an email. "It turns out that the gal is, in my opinion, a nut job and a drunk. Matt Olson and I answered the ad, and the woman said that if we came…

Oil Barge Hits Richmond Bridge

By LaDonna | January 11, 2008

A 300-ft oil barge carrying more than 2.6 million gallons of heavy black oil struck the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge last night around 6 p.m. Miraculously, not a drop of oil was spilled. The double-hulled barge was being maneuvered south through the tallest span of the bridge by two tugs in dense fog when it smashed…

The Elusive ‘Long-Stay Visa’

By Andy Turpin | January 9, 2008

It’s the time of year when dozens of cruisers are currently preparing to embark on the so-called Pacific Puddle Jump from the Americas to French Polynesia.

To Dangle or Not to Dangle

By Andy Turpin | January 9, 2008

“Help! I’m trapped by my safety device!” latitude/Andy© Latitude 38 Media, LLC While idling in the cockpit of Tom Lilienthal’s Beneteau 411 Dreamseeker last fall en route to Cabo San Lucas, we got into a friendly debate about the use of inflatable lifejackets. I’d noticed that both Captain Tom and crewman Grady Meadows liked to…

Anybody Up for a Swim?

By Andy Turpin | January 9, 2008

You think it’s been cold lately sailing on San Francisco Bay? Try swimming in it — without a wetsuit! Sound impossible? Not really. Believe it or not, there is an elite group of swimmers who regularly swim in Bay waters wearing only normal bathing suits and swimming caps. How they do it without turning blue…

Coville Out, Joyon Gaining Pace

By Rob Grant | January 7, 2008

Just minutes after setting a new 24-hour solo record, an encounter with an unidentified floating object forced Thomas Coville’s 105-ft trimaran Sodeb’O to retire from its singlehanded round-the-world attempt. After covering 619 miles at an average speed of 25.8 knots, Coville reports he was down below when he felt the boat slow dramatically — no…

More on Darla Jean

By LaDonna | January 7, 2008

When we receive reports of boats washing up on distant shores, we do our best to verify as many facts as possible but often must rely on eyewitness reports. Unfortunately, we are sometimes given inaccurate or incomplete information, as was apparently the case with Darla Jean. In the January issue of Latitude 38, we reported…
