Summer Sailstice was created to help all sailors connect on the water on the summer solstice, the longest sailing day of the year.
The annual Summer Sailstice event creates a new, fun sailing opportunity for Sailing Schools and clubs to introduce their programs to new students while also raising the interest of existing members/students in club yacht charters. This is an excellent way to expand your reach within your local area with an event that celebrates the value of sailing to everyone – from beginners to old salts.

- Provide expanded awareness and publicity to your School via promotion of your event on the Summer Sailstice website
- Create an opportunity for sister clubs and schools to celebrate sailing ‘together’
- Serve as the “event hook” for the launch of a new class, charter program or just a reason to showcase your club facilities through hosting a party of ‘got-to-get-on-the-water’ sailors!
