Are You Doing the 2021 Sailstice Photo Treasure Hunt?

In Latitude 38‘s June issue we shared the story of last year’s Summer Sailstice Photo Treasure Hunt, and frankly, it looked like a blast! Did you participate? If you didn’t, you have another chance at it tomorrow as the PICYA and the YRA of San Francisco Bay are inviting all Bay Area sailors to #raiseyoursails on Summer Sailstice weekend to participate in this year’s photo tour of the Bay.

Here are a few of the photo ops you’ll be searching for in this year’s Photo Treasure Hunt: your crew leaning on the Salesforce Tower; doing the hula in front of one of your favorite Pacific islands — Alameda, Yerba Buena, Red Rock, Angel, the Brothers or …?; a photo showing a salute with any yacht club in the background. And of course there has to be one of your crew in their favorite sailing swag-branded gear: Latitude 38 hat or T-shirt, Summer Sailstice hat or T-shirt, yacht club logowear, America’s Cup swag … You get the idea? You can see the full list at the event’s page on the Summer Sailstice website.

And if you are still not signed up for Summer Sailstice, just so you know you won’t be alone, here are some of the sailors who are signed up to participate.

Ros de Vries of Island Yacht Club and the Santa Cruz 27 class is helping get the club and class sailing, while Milly Biller continues to inspire the Inverness YC and grow the International 110 class on Tomales Bay and beyond. Sonya David and Jack Patton, aboard their Passport 42, Gemini, are on board, as well as Marissa and Chris Neely aboard their Cheoy Lee 41, Avocet. On the East Coast, Molly Winans, editor of Spinsheet magazine on Chesapeake Bay, is helping fill the Chesapeake with sailboats on June 19. And let’s not forget the Day on Banderas Bay with the Vallarta Yacht Club, and the Umbrella Downwinder Regatta and SUP Rally at Marina Riviera Nayarit in La Cruz, both of which are open to the public. So however and with whomever you sail, even if you’re doing it solo, you’ll be in very good company!

If you’re keen to sail tomorrow, and you haven’t yet made any plans, sign up for Summer Sailstice and join this event, or another event, or just sail!
