Sailors around the world will take to the water this weekend during Summer Sailstice, an annual event organized to highlight the recreation to potential sailors and get current sailors out on the water.

There will be dozens of public events and demonstrations across the country on Saturday and Sunday, including open houses, free sailing events and prizes.

Sailors are encouraged to take to social media and use #summersailstice #sailstice16 in Instagrams or Facebook pics and Twitter posts this week to help grow the celebration and share sailing with friends via video and music contests.
