Summer Sailstice, an event that brings together sailors from around the world to celebrate the sailing lifestyle by sailing “together” on the weekend closest to the summer solstice will take place this year on June 18th. Boats of all sizes are welcome as long as their sails are set. The 2010 Summer Sailstice brought together sailors in all 50 U.S. states and 47 countries.
The 2011 Summer Sailstice will again partner with Sailors For The Sea to support their mission to educate and empower the boating community to protect oceans and local waters. Simply check the pledge-box when you register to commit to contributing funds for each mile you sail as part of the event. Hint: Get your crew to commit to chipping in too!
Summer Sailstice will also be handing out prizes offered by the sailing industry from companies such as The Moorings, Hunter Marine, West Marine, Hobie, Offshore Sailing, Harken, Woodenboat, and many more.
