“Saga,” on our magazine’s cover, wins “People’s Choice” award at Tahoe Concours d’Elegance

From the blog of Sierra FoodWineArt magazine:

“Saga,” the 1930, 38-foot Chris Craft commuter featured on the cover of our summer issue, won the People’s Choice award at the 47th annual Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance this weekend.

Saga is owned by Ed and Deborah Scott. The Scotts named their classic wooden boat after the book “The Saga of Lake Tahoe,” written by Ed’s father, E.B. Scott, as our summer issue notes. 

Our cover photograph is by photojournalist Steven Lapkin, known for his award-winning photographs of wooden boats and America’s Cup yachts.

Steven writes in our magazine: “Through 40-plus years of experience, I have learned that the essence of providing an unforgettable image is both complex and remarkably simple. ‘Be at the right place at the right time.’”

Our Sierra FoodWineArt magazine circulates throughout the Sierra Foothills, Tahoe/Truckee, Reno and outlying Sacramento region in a full-color print format.

Our magazine also has a companion website, a digital edition, and a custom edition for smartphones. In addition, we just launched an audio edition (click on the audio icon) with our summer issue.
