Celebrate Summer Sailstice on the Gulf of Mexico!

Tom is planing to join around 60 boats to sail in the Texas 200 - a “Raid”-type event that covers the Laguna Madre and the bays of South Texas for five to six days and about 200 miles. Participants gather and travel in company, and camp along the way. Sound fun? Learn more here.

The Point Yacht Club are heading to Redfish Point where they’ll drop anchors and enjoy a weekend of sailing, swimming and fun! They’re a pretty active bunch who know how to party, so maybe you want to join them? Connect to the Point YC celebration.

Davis Island Yacht Club is celebrating Summer Sailstice by hosting their third annual Rally which runs from the yacht club, to Tampa’s Sail Pavilion Bar on the downtown waterfront.  Join the Rally! 


Join the friendly Texas sailors for a day of sailing on Aransas Bay, followed by a anchor and raft up off Mud Island. We’re waiting on more details, but I imagine it will involve a certain degree of merriment! http://www.summersailstice.com/event/aransas-bay-texas-sail-and-raft


Here’s an original plan - Lake Canyon Yacht Club is hosting their 2nd annual Summer Sailstice event - A ‘serious’ rum tasting session, followed by a ‘pot luck’ lunch, and (with the weather’s blessing) a sail to Crane’s Mill Marina for a supply of Hostess Twinkies! Oh, and DJ Captain Kirk is providing the background music, playing all the Island Hits.  Click to taste the rum.

Or if you’re in the mood for a party, how about Sailtime’s “Party at the Tiki Hut” ? Bring the family and enjoy a day of exploring sailboats, sailing lessons, music, food and fun! 

What a great bunch of ideas and plans for Summer Sailstice! Inspired to create your own event? Sign up and register your plans, or just RSVP to some of the great weekends on offer. Sailors always love to meet other sailors, and who knows, you could make some lifelong friends along the way!
