Summer Sailstice News & Stories
In Hingham, Massachusetts a 2007 Summer Sailstice “Unofficial Rendezvous” was organized. We were happy to be joined by these North East Trailer Sailors and here is their Summer Sailstice sailing adventure:
What started out to be 4 boats became a group of 3 as the crew of "Rosebud" was unable to join us. We all arrived at the Hingham launch ramp at various times Friday night with our boat "Spice" being the late arrival at 9:45PM. Rigging can wait till morning!
On the afternoon/evening of Friday the 22'nd sailors of the Back Yard Boat Builders met at Hart State Park to become reacquainted and forge new friendships over burgers cooked on the “Barbie”. And later campers listened to the guitar and harmonica played by fellow sailors. Saturday morning lots of kids turned out to learn how to build toy sailboats. They all created little boats that they hand carved. Everyone loved naming their boats and even got to sail them on the lake.
The family friendly Barrachois Harbour Yacht Club in northern Nova Scotia, Canada celebrated the longest day of the year with eleven boats out and enjoying a beautiful day on the water. Although it didn't start out as a race, eleven boats heading the same direction can become the perfect excuse for a fun race of some sort!
