In less than two weeks the northern hemisphere's official summer will kickoff with the northern hemisphere's Summer Solstice, and right on cue, Summer Sailstice sailors around the world will celebrate the official start of the summer sailing season. What a great combination!
Where are you planning to sail on the Summer Sailstice weekend?
If you haven't already added your plan to the Summer Sailstice map, you could be left at home suffering from a sailor's worst problem, FOMO - Fear of Missing Out. An believe us when we tell you, the fear is real. We've all felt it. When we see our friends go sailing on a grand adventure, when they're going off for the weekend to race or anchor out over night, even if they're just going for a cheeky two-hour sail. If we don't go too, we feel the loss. We are missing out!
Don't let it get that far, make your sailing plans now and stop FOMO in its tracks. You'll be so glad you did.
