All together now.  Summer Sailstice was created as a tool for the entire sailing commuity to showcase to the world all sailing has to offer.  That means your yacht club, your community sailing program, your one-design fleet or your idyllic cruising or chartering destination.  Too much of the world sees sailing only as the exclusive playground of the wealthy or see it in the press when the rare tragedy is reported.  The world has almost no idea of how most of us sail most of the time.
