Tall ships to small ships–sailors around the world are invited to celebrate the 13th annual Summer Sailstice on the weekend of June 22, 2013. Traditionally held the weekend closest to the summer solstice, this global celebration of sailing invites everyone to sail ‘together’ regardless of where they are or what they sail. Every year, the event connects more than 19,000 sailors all over the world to celebrate and showcase life under sail.
Participation is easy! Register for free on the event website to declare your participation and invite others to join you. Celebration events are planned for some areas; check “Featured Events” on the website to see what’s available. All entrants have a chance to win prizes donated from sailing companies including Quantum Sails.
