Summer Sailstice Circumnavigation: June 22-24!

Druid preening, ospreys!

Summer Sailstice this year is officially June 23 (yes, that’s a couple of days behind the actual solstice).  How will you spend it? Would you sail to the ends of the earth and back? How about something a little less ambitious, like the end of the lake? It’s not global, but Watauga Lake is big, with more than 45 miles of shoreline, and you’ve probably only seen part of it. If you will brave the weird and haunted shores at Watauga’s end, then you will need a captain who knows those waters.
skull-compass-roseSailor, you’re in luck: This year’s Summer Sailstice celebrants will circumnavigate Watauga Lake from Friday, June 22 (after work), through Sunday, June 24. At Commodore Bob’s request, S/V Windward is Summer Sailsticing for WLSC once again. Join us and become a captain who knows those waters.  Come for the whole thing, or join us for whatever part you are able. Leave with the first wave, catch up with us at anchor Friday night, or find us on Saturday morning, or boogie past the bridge and day sail with us on Sunday: it’s your call. Or just skip it, hear the stories later, and realize you’ve missed out on a lot of fun that people wanted you to be a part of.

More details to follow, but now’s the time to mark that calendar, stick that note on the refrigerator, put the entry in Google Docs. It’s also a great time to register for boffo prizes at You don’t have to enter to participate,  but the whole free prize thing is pretty compelling.

Fair Winds!
s/v Windward
