Cover: If two is company and three is a crowd, four cats are a blast in the tight quarters at this secret, shallow, bluewater anchorage in the Sea of Cortez. Clockwise from the bottom, the boats are Bill Lily's Lagoon 470 Moontide from Newport Beach, Arjan Bok's Lidgard 43 Rotkat from San Francisco, Latitude's Surfin' 63 Profligate from Punta Mita, and Bob Smith's Custom 44 Pantera from Victoria, B.C.

Latitude 38

• May, 2010

Latitude 38 welcomes editorial contributions in the form of stories, anecdotes, photographs – anything but poems, please; we gotta draw the line somewhere. Articles with the best chance at publication must 1) pertain to a West Coast or universal sailing audience, 2) be accompanied by a variety of pertinent, in-focus digital images (preferable) or color or black and white prints with identification of all boats, situations and people therein; and 3) be legible. These days, we prefer to receive both text and photos electronically, but if you send by mail, anything you want back must be accompanied by a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Submissions not accompanied by an SASE will not be returned. We also advise that you not send original photographs or negatives unless we specifically request them; copies will work just fine. Notification time varies with our workload, but generally runs four to six weeks. Please don't contact us before then by phone or mail. Send all submissions to editorial@latitude38.com, or mail to Latitude 38 editorial department, 15 Locust Ave., Mill Valley, CA 94941. For more specific information, request writers' guidelines from the above address or see www.latitude38.com/writers.html.
