Summer Sailstice 2020

Entries accepted between and .

Charge up your cameras, dust off the drone and get ready for the 2020 Summer Sailstice Video Challenge. Last year's contest produced several great entries and we can't wait to see what you create from this year's Sailstice shenanigans! 

To enter, send us a 1-minute video that showcases your Summer Sailstice Celebration. Judges will be strict on the 1-minute so pay attention to that timer. Make sure you include a date stamp. Whether it's the day's paper or the date on your phone, we want to see it!

First Prize is a GoPro.

We'll be looking for videos that demonstrate the joys of sailing in every form - planning, provisioning, preparing to untie, underway, coming back to the dock or anything else you want to show us. Even the after party counts!

We'll also be judging your creativity and skills in editing your clip into the 1-minute time frame.

* Submissions must include #sailstice20 to be eligible

If you're looking for ideas and inspiration take a look at the 2018 First Place video by Mike Harmer, titled "s-v Unsinkable 2.":
