Is Sailstice the Best Day of the Year?

Despite the pandemic, we've got to say, it was a great year. For obvious reasons, we didn't have as many regattas, community sailing open houses, or class raft-ups. But the variety of boats, people, and locations participating plus the growing sense of tradition all bode well for the event and sailing. 

In the San Fransisco Bay, the YRA of SF Bay photo treasure hunt was a blast, with many boats participating throughout the weekend.
