2016 Summer Sailstice Sailing Invitation

Members of Eastport Yacht Club are invited to join the 16th annual Summer Sailstice celebration of sailing on June 18, 2016

Summer SailsticeLet’s put EYC on the map! Saturday, June 18, is the 16th annual Summer Sailstice global celebration of sailing. In 2015, sailors participated by racing, cruising or daysailing from all 50 US states and over 40 countries sailing ‘together’, wherever they were in the world.

EYC’s Cruising Committee is inviting all our members to sign up, hoist sails and ‘get out the boat’ for our club Summer Sailstice event, even if you don’t have a boat! We want our club and sailors to be ‘on the map’ of 2016 Summer Sailstice celebrations. Bring your favorite sailing beverage and an appetizer to share and plan on rafting up in Whitehall Bay (weather permitting) from 5 – 6 p.m. for cocktails and fellowship.

Be sure to register for our event on the Summer Sailstice site to help put EYC on the Sailstice map. To participate, sign up at http://www.summersailstice.com/event/eyc-raft-cocktails-whitehall-bay.
