Top 10 Reasons To Sail This Weekend
Published on June 18th, 2015
Summer Sailstice is a worldwide celebration of sailing on the weekend closest to the summer solstice in North America, which this year falls on Saturday, June 20.
10. It’s Summertime – Most Daylight of the Whole Year
From the high Northern latitudes to much of the Southern Hemisphere it’s prime sailing time. If not now, when?
9. Your Friends Will All Be Out There
Get together in a cove or on the race course – you’ll be part of hundreds of events on the Summer Sailstice site.
8. You Could Win
There’s a One-Week BVI Charter From Sunsail or hundreds of other great prizes from your favorite marine suppliers
7. It’s Easy
You don’t have to bake a turkey, wrap presents, dress in green, hide eggs OR march in a parade – but since Summer Sailstice is your holiday, you’re free to develop your own creative “sailing on the Sailstice” traditions. And because, 20 years from now when Summer Sailstice becomes a three-day holiday weekend with Monday off, you’ll remember how you helped get it all started.
6. Introduce Friends And Family
Parents with kids or sailing communities with newcomers – share sailing at the beginning of summer so they can enjoy it all summer long. A global sailing celebration makes all of sailing visible, understandable and approachable.
5. You’ll Be Sailing ‘With’ Multihull Legend Loick Peyron
And sailing with sailors everywhere. Don’t be the only one left ashore. Do what Loick is doing: go sailing this weekend.
4. ‘The Meek Will Inherit the Earth, The Brave Get The Oceans’
Be brave and join the world’s sailors at sea. An escape to the sea is the antidote almost everything.
3. Everyone Needs A Deadline
If you’re not sailing by the first weekend of summer when will you be sailing?
2. The Earth Is 70% Covered In Water
It’s less crowded ‘out there’. You’re missing something if you spend the majority of your life on just 30% of the planet.
1. For Everyone To Celebrate The Pure Pleasure Of Sailing
Beyond the all the great reasons above the pure pleasure of sailing on any day of the year should be reason enough to be out on this day of the year!
One weekend a year, the whole world gets together to sail, where they are, on what they have, near the solstice, at the start of summer to celebrate history, legacy, culture and pleasure of sailing! Join the crowd for Summer Sailstice – celebrating sailing on the solstice.
