I, Mary Martha Frances Krutsch, do solemnly swear that I know absolutely nothing about sailing.
It’s a cruel irony, right? A twenty-five-something who has lived a majority of her adult life less than an hour from Lake Erie, who loves relaxing and enjoying life as much as anyone else, and who edits a magazine about sailing, knows almost nothing about sailing.
In fact, I don’t know much about anything. I’ve been at this posting with the magazine for less than a year by the date of this issue’s publication, having started in May of 2022. I think it’s safe to say that I’m the baby of the Lats & Atts family. The crew has all been encouraging, reassuring me that I’m learning the ropes and acclimating myself to the world of boats and this publication quickly. I’m supported constantly by Erik, David, and the man himself, Bob Bitchin.
However, anyone who knows me knows that being told I’m doing good enough from behind a desk is not good enough for me. If I’m going to be editing the stories for the best damn cruising magazine on the planet, I should probably know more than what you can get while sitting at a chair. I want to learn how to sail so that I can connect with you, the readers, better and know firsthand what makes the cruising lifestyle so appealing to thousands of people.
