Summer Sailstice 2018 is now less than 5 months away. Do you have your pin on the map? Just to let you know, there are only 20 weeks until June 23!
You might think that's a long time, and in some circumstances it is a long time. Circumstances such as knowing your new boat is 20 weeks off delivery, or knowing you have to count 20 weeks worth of sleeps before you quit your job and become a full-time cruiser can certainly make the time seem like years. But the truth is 20 weeks sails by very quickly, particularly if you want to plan ahead and organize yourself to be ready for the next best thing to a new boat, or becoming a full-time cruiser - Summer Sailstice 2018!
Don't be misled, June will arrive very quickly and to help get you thinking about how you will celebrate here are some more of this year's plans and events that are already on the map -
