Latitude 38 Did an Article About Us !

We met the owner of the San Francisco Bay sailing magazine, Latitude 38 on the docks a couple of weeks ago and he decided to do an article about our family because we're unusual and we're almost ready to cruise. If you go to latitude38.com and click on the November issue you can view it on issuu or download the PDF of the whole magazine. We're at the back of the Sightings section, the story is called Last Sail, First Sail.
Check it out!

Re: Latitude 38 Did an Article About Us!

Congratulations!
You are truly famous. I wonder what the readership of Latitude 38 is. I've been looking through its pages for at least 30 years if I remember correctly (I might not).
kind regards,

Re: Latitude 38 Did an Article About Us!

So, what do I have to do to become "unusual" so as to deserve being the subject of a magazine article?

Re: Latitude 38 Did an Article About Us!

Richard and Donna are indeed great ambassadors for the cruising community.

Late December they always fly to the BVI's and thake their cat out of charther to spend New Years Eve and several weeks at St Barts's where ye rents a computer from one of the internet cafes to write for the Febuary issue.

Go to his website and do a Google search on my last name "Anderton" or my boats name "Sanderling" for all the articles he has been gracious enough to write about our annual meetings and the cruising notes witten by me.

Re: Latitude 38 Did an Article About Us!

Thanks everyone!
If we've inspired anyone, well, that's great. It really is.
The past looks like absolute **** but the future, it's looking pretty good.
Gotta keep looking forward!
Warm water here we come.

Don't usually read Lat 38 but found a copy for the sake of your article. How fun! A nice shot of validation for all the hard work. Congrats for getting to your goal btw... great to hear that you guys are ready to go! Best wishes for some great cruising.

BTW What a happy looking bunch!!

Re: Latitude 38 Did an Article About Us !

I'm beginning to feel like a free man. It's weird to be relaxed. I can eat and sleep normally now, what is up with that?
I'm so anxious to set off, one more storm and then we're gone from this money pit that they call the San Francisco Bay area.
