WOMEN’S CIRCUIT The events on this page constitute Latitude 38’s unofficial Women’s Circuit. We challenge women sailors to take the helm and create their own series of events from this list. You don’t need to finish first to win, and you don’t need to do all the races on the list either! Just send proof of your participation in as many events as you can to, or fax it to (415) 383-5816, by November 10, 2017, and you could be crowned Latitude’s ‘Queen of the Women’s Circuit’.
