About Summer Sailstice:
Summer Sailstice is the creation of California based sailing enthusiast, John Arndt. Each year since 2001, sailors from all over the world are invited to sail together on the weekend closest to the northern hemisphere’s summer solstice to celebrate the joy, tradition and beauty of sailing. Supported by local and international marine manufacturers, businesses and organizations the global sailing event promotes participation in sailing as a sport and recreational activity. Put simply, Summer Sailstice was created to unite and demonstrate the diverse world of sailing, and be a lot of fun.
