The Summer Sailstice event marks its 10th anniversary this year.

From June 19-20, sailors are encouraged to get out on the nearest body of water and celebrate the sport with their friends and family. The goal this year is to get as many sailboats in as many time zones as possible on the water during a 24-hour period. Almost 4,000 sailboats and 15,000 sailors around the world participated last year.

Sailors can sign up for free, then use the site to make plans for public and private celebrations, recruit crew, post stories and learned about other Sailstice events being organized locally.

Participants can win one of some 400 prizes donated by several marine distributors such as West Marine, Hunter Marine, The Moorings, Hobie, Offshore Sailing, Harken, Woodenboat and others.
