TheSailingChannel.TV brings you seasons 1 through 5, sixty-five 22-minute episodes - nearly 24 hours in all. Bob Bitchin's co-hosts include Courtney Haas and Zuzana Prochazka.
Latitudes & Attitudes TV made history with its 5-year run as the first half-hour sailing series on national cable television.
Feature stories take you to international sailing destinations throughout the South Pacific, Mediterranean, Caribbean, Mexico, Canada, and United States. The magazine-style program includes gear reviews from prominent Sailboat Shows, sailboat reviews, and special sailing events. Each episode contains photos from Lats & Atts cruising fans set to the music of Eric Stone, and a wrap-up with some salty comments with Bob Bitchin's "Attitudes".
The series includes seasons 1 through 5: sixty-five 22-minute episodes - nearly 24 hours of viewing in all.
NOTE: In 2019, Bob Bitchin reclaimed rights to the trade name “Latitudes & Attitudes” (lost during a business dispute some years back.) His current magazine, Cruising Outpost has reverted to its original name: Latitudes & Attitudes Magazine – the best selling nautical publication on U.S. newsstands and in marine stores.
NOTE: In 2021, Bob sold Latitudes and Attitudes to Kylemedia that operates the Marine Ad Network and Great Lakes Scuttlebutt. Bob will continue in an emeritus status and attend boat shows and other events representing Latitudes & Attitudes.
