Kelly, you really should include a copy of Latitude 38 in your gift pack. It is free at any West Marine store if you happen to hit them at the right time...but you can ask the staff to hold one back for you, given your ''special'' need.
It is free and oriented to sailing on San Francisco Bay but, over the years, has developed a following among sailors all over the world. The ''Letters'' and ''Cruising'' sections are in fact chocked full of content from world cruisers and it makes the reading realistic and ''first hand'' in ways often missed by the glossy monthly periodicals. Its success has spawned a series of other regional, free mags (Spinsheet in the Chesapeake Bay area, Southwinds in the U.S. Southeast, Latitude 48 in the Pac Northwest), all of which are positive assets for us all - any of them would also make a nice addition.
