Re: L&A Has Been Sold

Truthfully, I thought the L&A magazine was pretty lame. Contrast it to Latitude 38 which has an almost religious cult following. I read every issue of Lat 38 for the first 15 years or so, and then when I moved away lost touch with it. People pass around copies instead of throwing them out. The letters to the editor were fantastic, and that was helped by the environment. San Francisco Bay sailors are a cut above the rest. I know I sailed, raced, and taught there for 12 years. One design racing in San Francisco is on par with the Olympics.

yea verily .... lame indeed.

I remember buying a few issues of L&A way back and it went ho hum very soon thereafter. Downloaded a few after that but even there I simply lost interest.

I was speaking with Bob in Miami - the new company has bought back the Lost Soul and they want Bob to cruise and write for them. Now if that isn't a great deal...so Bob will continue to adventure, tell tales, attend boat shows and entertain the rest of us. Seems the new owners recognize what Bob really had in the mag.

??? I don't follow the many threads spread out across the Internet on this - so I think I'm missing some context.

Re: L&A Has Been Sold

Wow...I thought someone else had bought them out and that they were going to continue the magazine business...so they have jumped ship?
