Loick Peyron's Annual Summer Sailstice Celebration

June 27, 2016 by John A

It's rare to find a moment when world-renowned sailor Loick Peyron is not crossing an ocean or tuning up the Artemis America's Cup team but this year's Summer Sailstice found him back from a victorious Artemis Racing America's Cup weekend in Chicago taking a breath close to home for Father's Day with the family and with the hope of fitting in a quick kitesurf for Summer Sailstice.  

Loick chimed in with best wishes for sailors celebrating Summer Sailstice from his home in France:

"So here we are again, another month of June  is flying past us.. which means another Summer Sailstice of course !
I'm very happy to share this time again, so cool to see this little event growing larger and older with every year, in fact I have more white hairs to prove it !  Always a success and more boats on the water.. fun to have a look at everyone's plans for this celebration of sailing for sure.
I've just returned home from a top weekend in Chicago with my Artemis teammates, the Windy City was quite nice to us. : )
Now time to enjoy some relaxing moments with my wife, my kids and my 3 chickens, hope to have a little kiteboarding session in La Baule if the weather will let me, but first I need to clean the pool !
Have a good Summer Sailstice this weekend, see you out there mates
En Francais:
Nous y voilà une fois de plus, un autre mois de juin s'envole devant nous, ce qui signifie un nouveau Summer Sailstice bien sur!
Ravi une fois de plus de partager ce moment, tellement cool de voir cet événement grandir et se bonifier chaque année, et d'ailleurs mes cheveux blancs le prouvent ! Toujours un succès avec encore plus de bateaux sur l'eau ... c'est sympa de voir le programme de chacun pour cette célébration.
Je viens juste de rentrer à la maison après un super week-end avec les copains d'Artemis, la cité venteuse nous a été plutôt favorable! 
Maintenant c'est l'heure de se relaxer avec ma femme mes enfants et les 3 poules, j'espère pouvoir aller faire une petite session Kiteboard à la Baule si la météo le permet, mais d'abord il faut que je nettoie la piscine!
Bon weekend de Summer Sailstice à tous, on se voit sur l'eau les copains!

While it seems Loick has been celebrating sailing his whole life 2016 was the 6th time he's connected with sailors everywhere on the Summer Sailstice celebration of sailing.  In 2013 he was sailing with Artemis Racing for the America's Cup on San Francisco Bay and it all started with Loick racing in the Bol D'Or in 2011.

Always great to be celebrating sailing with Loick Peyron on Summer Sailstice and to attempt to keep up with his adventures all year long.
