We've been pretty busy this week with some great new prizes being donated for this year's celebration. Read on and see what's on offer...

Welcome aboard Summer Sailstice, 2K Yachting. The German based sailing software company is donating 3 x digital "Logbook 3.7" and 10 x "Signal Flags Tool" apps. The company began in 2008 when sailors, Helmut and Almute Kraus, decided to use their nautical knowledge and experience to create practical navigation electronics for every day sailing. Their Logbook 3.7 and Signal Flags apps are used by power and sail boat owners across the globe on both inland waterways and ocean voyages. The software is easy to use and is compatible with Windows and Mac PCs and iPad. 2K Yachting also has an interesting gallery of Helmut’s stunning nautical images. Take a look at some of his creative works.

Whitecaps Marine Outfitters is back on board and has donated this 50L Helly Hansen-brand duffel, with the Whitecaps Marine logo. Whitecaps Marine Outfitters supplies all the best brands for all the sailors. Wether you’re into dinghy sailing, racing, cruising, or all of the above, Whitecaps can provide you with everything from sailing jackets to bis, to shoes, gloves drysuits, hats, bags, watches… and much more! Plus they will create your customized logo or name to put on almost any item available on their website. "Whether one-design racing or cruising in the Caribbean, we promise to give you the best shopping experience from selection to advice to delivery.” See the full range.


48° North Sailing Magazine has donated 2 x 'print' Magazine subscriptions, and 2 x 48° North Caps and Beanies for this year’s Summer Sailstice sailors. 48° North is written by sailors, for sailors, so you’re guaranteed to get a great read every time you open this monthly magazine, which is widely regarded as the Northwest's premier sailing magazine. "It's one of the most active and beautiful sailing regions in North America and if you're not out sailing during the solstice, you're missing the very best of the local sailing season.” So go ahead, Sign up and get on board for some great sailing fun, and to be in the drawing for one of these, or other great prizes.


J/Boats is back for 2016 with 2 x $100 gift certificates which can be redeemed for any of their quality JGear products. Choose from comfortable and fashionable sailing clothing, such as t-shirts, polo shirts, sailing jackets and sailing hats, comfy hoody sweatshirts, J-brand backpacks, totes and J-flags, or perhaps a J/Boats Calendar! If you own a J/Boat, we know you’re going to want to get hold of one of these two gift vouchers, so make sure you’re signed up, and while you’re at it remember to post your sailing plans, or jump on board for one of the Public or Demo Events. You gotta be in it to win it!


Anyone into shipboard music? Kala Brand Music Co is onboard with 3 x ‘Waterman’ Ukuleles. Summer Sailstice sailors will have a chance to win either the “Glow in the Dark”, “Orange Swirls”, or “All Transparent” ukulele - they call this last one “The Ghost Uke”. Sounds pretty funky right?  I know I like having music on board and you can’t beat a Ukulele for some fun and tunes with friends. So get on board for Summer Sailstice and be in the running to win one of these quality instruments - made with water resistant composite technology, and packing vintage design and sound. I want one! Take a look at their website and maybe get yourself a Waterman Uke now and create some Sailstice tunes. Who knows, you might get famous.

Well, that’s all from me for this week. Remember, it’s only 16 weeks until Summer Sailstice. Summer is coming, guaranteed. Can you feel it in the air?
