THE SAIL OF THE ORIGINAL SUMMER SAILSTICE
For the Arndt family, the seventh annual Summer Sailstice was one of our best. We started out on our Ranger 33 "Summer Sailstice" with the Summer Sailstice celebration at Treasure Island Sailing Center (www.tisailing.org) and used it as a launching point for a week-long cruise, in the company with four other boats, up the California Delta.
One of the best things about Summer Sailstice is the long hours of daylight sailing available. We started out with a gentle, 30-mile sail up river to Benecia and then spent the next nine days enjoying life aboard. For the full story, visit us online!
SAVE THE DATE: JUNE 21 & 22 - 2008 AND VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
By a quirk of the calendar 2008 is a leap year and the actual solstice will move from Thursday in 2007 to Saturday in 2008 although (depending on which website you visit) it may be 6/20 at 23:59 or 6/21 at 00:00! Well let the astronomers figure that one out but in either case you should put your Summer Sailstice celebration on the calendar now for the weekend of June 21/22. And common sense would suggest you hedge your bets and include Friday the 20th to make a three day Summer Sailstice weekend holiday out of it!
