About Summer Sailstice
 The Summer Sailstice San Francisco Festival is part of the global holiday of Summer Sailstice. Guided by an organizing committee of sailing organizations and businesses, the Festival intends to be Northern California's largest on-the-water celebration for everyone who loves harnessing wind, water, sun and sails to power their fun. See the feature story on Summer Sailstice SF Festival in Bay Crossings Summer Sailstice was founded in February 2001 by John Arndt, as the global, annual celebration of sailing held on the summer solstice. The annual Summer Sailstice sailing event is free to all participants and has grown from 200 boats signed up in 2001 to well over 4,600 boats today. Since many sailors join in the fun on boats signed up at, the actual number of Summer Sailstice sailors participating is estimated at almost 17,000 annually.
