Sail-World.com : Remember, June 21 coming soon. Sail to save the sea this solstice
Remember, June 21 coming soon. Sail to save the sea this solstice

'Summer Sailstice and Sailors for the Sea join money-raising forces for notional circumnavigation'    .

This year, don't forget that Sailors for the Sea and Summer Sailstice have teamed up to create a unique fundraiser on June 21. It's coming soon! Together, they are mobilizing sailors to join a collective circumnavigation and raise funds for ocean health.

How does it work?
Sail 10 miles + Donate $1 or more per mile x 2,600 sailors across the globe = a great day on the water for all and $26,000 raised towards restoring ocean heath

Why does the ocean need our help?

? The Earth's waters are under increasing pressure from human use; marine life, coastal environments and even the deepest areas of the ocean are all impacted by pollution.
? In all five oceans, the many of the great lakes of the world and many rivers, plastic debris can be found, sometimes in the shape of a bottle or so small you need a microscope!
? 90% of the big fish in the ocean are gone - making the issue of overfishing and mismanagement of fisheries an important matter for our global food resources.
? Every year 400 dead zones appear in oceans and large lakes around the world created by runoff from sewage, urban land use and fertilizers.


While these problems can seem insurmountable, hope exists to save the oceans.

Sailors for the Sea is a leading environmental organization that engages, educates, inspires and activates the sailing and boating community toward healing the ocean and protecting the waters they love!

How do I make my donation?

You can make a flat donation today by clicking here. Or email to pledge at least $1 per mile that you plan to sail on the weekend of Summer Sailstice! Over 1,000 Summer Sailstice participants have signed up to support Sailors for the Sea. Join the circumnavigation to make 2014 the best ever.

First three people to pledge to Sailors for the Sea here will receive a new, 2014 Summer Sailstice burgee from North Sails and an America’s Cup top which will fit you or someone you know!

Visit the Summer Sailstice store at the Pirate's_Lair!new to get your gear in time for Summer Sailstice.
