We have been receiving wonderful stories, photos, and messages from the 21st Sailstice weekend. 

Suki & Chuck of the Valiant 50 SV Blue Marble Explorer (San Francisco) had a splendid day sail on the Southern Strait of Georgia in Washington state. They hosted Linda & Fred of SV Perla Moon (La Paz) and set out from Semiahmoo marina. There was an 18 knot warm 80-degree breeze and blue skies.

They stopped off in Point Roberts hoping to support this community isolated by the US/Canada border closure, but found no open restaurants. At greater than 48 degrees of latitude there was a little more than 16 hours of daylight on the solstice.  Last light after 10 pm. #blue_marble_explorer
