One June 22nd sailing enthusiasts from around the world will gather for Summer Sailstice, a global celebration that takes place on the weekend closest to the summer solstice. Founded in 2001, this international event connects the global sailing community in a fun, creative, multifaceted, multi-location sailing holiday. It has expanded to include participants from Asia, across the Americas and Europe.

Through a partnership with ocean conservation non-profits, Sailors for the Sea and Ocean Conservancy, Summer Sailstice strives to inform and mobilize sailors, their families and communities to enjoy and conserve the beauty of the oceans while raising awareness of human impacts on the fragile marine environment and wildlife.

Even if you don’t have a boat to sail but you’re an experienced sailor, you can go and register for America’s first boater-to-boater™ charter marketplace where you can rent boats from fellow sailors.
