Sailboat builders are teaming up for their annual Summer Sailstice, calling upon sailors to drop everything and sail on Saturday.

“On June 23rd it's time to drop the computer, drop the emails, skip the texts and get out sailing in the real world,” said a Summer Sailstice release that includes everything from prizes to excuse notes to print for the boss.

The event coordinates with the summer solstice, which is on June 20 this year, and has been added as a bonus sailing day.

Builders that include Hobie, Hunter, J/Boats, Corsair and Windrider will participate in sailing events during the weekend. Summer Sailstice celebrates sailing on the weekend closest to the solstice, but boaters are urged to sail on the actual solstice.
