       About Summer Sailstice: Saturday, June 18th marks the 21st anniversary of Summer Sailstice, a global holiday celebrating sailing. Sailors participated by racing, cruising or day sailing from all 50 US states and over 40 countries sailing ‘together’, wherever they are in the world. There are usually around 5,000 boats with 19,000 sailors participating. Mary Anne Greblunas have been joining in the fun since 2004. To participate and win prizes, sailors need to simply sign up on this event and then go sailing on the weekend of June 18th. There’s no better way to start the summer and no better weekend in the Northern Hemisphere to unite with sailors around the world. Mary Anne welcomes to her Summer Sailstice Cruise Team Debbie Koelliker and Rena on Liberty. I believe this will be our best year yet. We will be introducing some new activities this year, stay tune!
