Well. it's that time! The Summer Sailstice on-water celebrations have passed, but the fun continues. The 2019 prize draw has begun and we're ready to announce the first winners. But first, a word for our sponsors, partners, prize donors and supporters:
"We love how you support sailing and we appreciate all that you do for the sport and for Summer Sailstice. This year's celebration has been a great success and we can't wait to see what next year's 20th anniversary brings to the party."
To get the ball rolling, or in this case the prizes rolling, here's what's happened so far. Last week, just prior to the 4th of July holiday, we awarded the prizes from our Gold level partner, US Sailing. US Sailing has been fantastic in growing and supporting sailing across the country, and in recent months has been instrumental in promoting Summer Sailstice to all its affiliated sailing schools, clubs and organizations. And that's on top of the prizes they donated.
