The celebrations didn't stop there...
"So… after prizes & taco’s a lot of our sailors & other club members joined in on the Drumming & Sipping event afterwards! As you can see drinking & drumming can be a lot of fun as well as great exercise!" - Carol Ringdahl, Lake Delta Yacht Club

And if you take a look at this video you'll see a great Summer Sailstice burgee collection:

San Francisco Bay, CA:
"The Facebook group, the Washed Up Yacht Club (WUYC) had an amazing 42 boat circular raft up in Clipper Cove, Treasure Island, San Francisco, as our Summer Sailstice. In addition to the 42 boats, some of our intrepid club members built a floating dance floor, and in the middle of the raft up, a floating (habitable) island, where a few landlubbers spent the night."

Lake Almanor, CA:
"Sailing our Catalina 22 with our dog Spencer on the Summer Sailstice."  - Sue McCourt
Sue's Catalina is named Three Little Birds, and her dog is named Spencer. Spencer has featured in previous Summer Sailstice photos so we guess he's a great sea-dog.

Hammond, Indiana:
"The National One Design Racing Association (NODRA) had its Great Lakes Regatta June 22-23 at the Illiana Yacht Club on Wolf Lake in Hammond Indiana." - Marguerite Erme
