Sailing Angels is participating in the 19th Annual Summer Sailstice to promote the joy of sailing and to provide a unique “hydro-therapy” experience with other members of our Greater Houston community who have special needs, military veterans, First Responders, at-risk youth and others.

Sailing Angels is the only charity of its kind in the U.S. that provides this service to the extent of the breadth and depth to so many. Our non-profit organization has been providing this opportunity free of charge for over 10 years and served over 17,000 guests. We have more than 45 volunteer boats in our fleet and over 135 volunteer captains and crewmembers.

We look forward to participating in this global event where mariners will “cruise locally and celebrate globally”! Guests will board vessels at various marinas around Clear Lake to begin their adventure, which will culminate in a 2-hour cruise on Galveston Bay. To participate in this event with Sailing Angels, please visit our website to register at and complete the registration form. Be sure to indicate Summer Sailstice in your registration.

The Summer Sailstice sailing holiday invites all sailors to hoist their sails wherever they are, aboard whatever their vessel (sail or motor) and showcase the “who, what, where, why and how” of sailing. While just one weekend in the life of sailing, Summer Sailstice is the only time all sailors and all sailing styles can cruise and celebrate ‘together’. 2018 saw the largest Summer Sailstice celebration yet with sailors participating in all 50 US states and across the globe.

Participation is free at Everyone participating in Summer Sailstice helps support sailing locally, while connecting with the global sailing community. Participants create Sailstice events, recruit crew, invite others, post stories and learn about other Sailstice events being organized in their area. Every registered participant is automatically entered in the draw to win from hundreds of prizes contributed by sailing businesses and organizations such as Sunsail, Navionics, North Sails, West Marine, Offshore Sailing, North Sails, Jeanneau, Team McLube and many more. In 2019, Summer Sailstice is again teaming up with Sailors for the Sea to support their mission of enlisting sailors in support of healthy oceans. When signing up, participants can join Sailors for the Sea in their mission to secure a better future for the world’s oceans.
