Today is the Spring Equinox in the northern hemisphere. The length of day and night will become nearly equal all over the world. With spring on the horizon, we begin to adjust our sails and prepare for summer. Is your boat ready and have you planned your summer sailing adventures? Either way, take a look at what's happening for this year's Summer Sailstice. We're getting great responses from our Sponsors, Partners, and Prize Donors and are updating the pages daily.
