We are excited to be officially celebrating the Summer Sailstice across all of our North American sailing bases this year. With a few exceptions, your local SailTime base has got plans that can include you! SailTime bases at 18 marinas across the country will be holding open houses on June 20th with a variety of activities ranging from refreshments to demo sails.
Current Members, Owner Members , SailTime staff and Captains are gathering together to celebrate Summer Sailstice and answer any questions you have about our ASA sailing schools or fractional membership and ownership programs.
At Virginia Beach, Manage Kristen Diviney says, “We will be having refreshments and two boats available to view, including a 2014 Marlow-Hunter 33′ and a unique, electric, Hunter Vision 360. Additionally, we will be giving away a 2-hour Captained Discover Sail on one of our 22′ sailboats to any registered expo attendees.”
Up the Chesapeake Bay in Annapolis, Base Manager, Gordon Bennet, says, “We’ll be talking sailing and giving demo rides to registered attendees on our new Marlow Hunter 40, a Beneteau First 22 and possibly a Beneteau 35 based on attendance.”
Meanwhile on the West Coast at SailTime San Francisco, Base Owner, Lisa Chapin tell us, “We will have our Hunter 39 at Pier 39, on the downtown waterfront and will be answering everybody’s local sailing questions. Refreshments will be on hand.” Down in Newport Beach, CA, Base Manager, Tom Collins says, “We are holding our Open House from 11am to 1pm and then have a demo Sail from 1pm to 3pm. We will have our beautiful Hunter 40 “Kuuipo” available for people to see and sail!”
It’s a great opportunity to meet the friendly and knowledgable people at all of our bases who love to talk sailing and go sailing!
All attendees who RSVP for the summer sailstice via their local sailtime base will be entered to win one of the awesome prizes provided by Summer Sailstice sponsors that include a 1 week charter in the BVI, A Hobie Mirage sailing kayak, Stand Up Paddleboard, gear bags, sunglasses and the list goes on and on! If you have been wanting to participate in Summer Sailstice but don’t have a boat to do it on, come and hang out on one of ours for the day and experience the sailing lifestyle!
