Mimi Towle, Nikki Wood,
This is a big month for us here at Marin Magazine. Basically, we have been doing double duty, producing the regular magazine and the 56-page insert you’ll find
in the middle of the book. and we are proud of
this insert; in its pages is all you need to know
to watch, attend and cheer on your favorite
america’s Cup team. it promises to be a summer of sailing unlike any other here on the
bay, so enjoy it and the guide.
in our regular July issue, Jacoba Charles
starts off our features with a look at female
ranchers. These farming heroines are helping
to modernize operations and bring quality
food to the table for the rest of us.
We continue with another look at Marin’s
music scene. it seems the last time we wrote
about the topic back in December 2011,
everything changed the second the issue hit
newsstands and homes. This time we sent
Carol Pott, herself a musician and a mom, to
find out which clubs are here to stay.
We wrap up features with a look at wealth
management. Carrie Kirby asks local professionals how to keep it and save it and when to
spend some of it.
in the front of the book we talk to san
Rafael Pacifics general manager and president
Mike shapiro about the new season and living
in Marin; take a look at equestrian-inspired
fashion and accessories; hop on the mountain
bike to investigate the Bay area’s first flow
trail; and sit down with Gavin Newsom to discuss politics and technology.
The back of the book sees us uncovering
the best staycations around and, if you just
have to get away, Journey takes you to the
Champagne region of France.
This month’s cover is a piece by Mill Valley
artist Eric Zener. his iconic water imagery has
been a favorite at Marin Magazine for years.
it’s a big issue, the perfect one to keep on
the coffee table and share with guests when
they come to visit for the summer. savor it,
the beautiful county we live in and the 34th
america’s Cup — remember, these boats, and
the summer, go fast.

trail. See bikers ride the trail at
