      Summer Sailstice is the global holiday celebrating sailing held annually on the summer solstice, the longest sailing day of the year. This international event was founded to connect the global sailing community in a fun, creative, multifaceted, multi-location sailing holiday.
      In 2006, Summer Sailstice enters it’s 6th year, uniting thousands of cruising sailors, yacht racers and pleasure boaters all over the world in celebration of wind, water and sailing. In December 2005, Summer Sailstice won the International Sailing Summit Award and in 2004 was named one of sailings “Top 10 Events” by Sailing Magazine.

      Here's ten great reasons for you to join other Summer Sailstice sailors out on the water in June on the solstice:  
      1.       Just by signing up and going sailing on the solstice you're eligible to win over 200 prizes from our sponsors FOR FREE.
      2.       The summer solstice weekend has the longest sailing days of the year, you should be planning to go sailing anyway, RIGHT?
      3.       Post your plans and invite your friends - by letting everyone know where, when and how you're celebrating sailing you'll help create new sailing holiday traditions.
      4.       Sunday the 18th is Father's Day, where else would he rather be on the first day of summer?
      5.       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.
      6.       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.
      7.       Because all the clouds and rain will be in the Southern Hemisphere that day and sailors in the Northern Hemisphere will have 24 hours of sunshine!  Conversely, the opposite will happen on December 21st .
      8.       Let’s face it …everyone needs a deadline. If you don't have your boat ready for summer sailing by the solstice you've already missed too much of the sailing season
      9.       They say 'the meek shall inherit the earth, the brave get the oceans'. Be brave, sign up and go sailing.
      10.   Did we mention sailing, friends, parties, prizes - do you really need an excuse to go sailing on the longest day of the year?
      Here’s a bonus – send your best reason to go sailing on Summer Sailstice to john@... and we’ll add it to our list!
