Lyall and Katie Burgess are living the dream. They’re active sailors living in Hawaii and also are boat owners who have a Dufour 382 in the Dream Yacht Charters program. That enables them to take owner's weeks anywhere there’s a Dream Yacht Charter base. They recently returned from a Med adventure and not have put their June 20, 2020 plans on the Summer Sailstice map. They’ll be celebrating sailing at just 8 degrees north of the equator aboard a Dream Yacht in Phuket Thailand.
Sun Powered Yachts is also a Summer Sailstice prize donor and has contributed a 100W flexible solar panel to be awarded to a 2020 Sailstice participant. Last year Kellie Fennessy in Torrance, CA won the solar panel. 2020 could be your year to get all charged up with the sun.
In the meantime, you can read a bit more about Lyall and Katie’s recent Dream Yacht Charter in Raiatea, Tahiti as covered in the current issue of Latitude 38 magazine. It may seem like June 20th is a way off but it’s not too early to start dreaming about what and where you’ll be sailing on the solstice and 20th anniversary of Summer Sailstice.
