We've spent all week daydreaming about an exotic Riviera getaway, but then reality hit, and we realized St. Tropez is still just a fantasy. Lucky for us, we have an alternative to the sun-soaked Mediterranean right in our backyard: a day of sailing on the Bay. So take advantage of the warm weather this weekend and head to the Wharf for a leisurely day on the water. Even though no experience is necessary, you can still look like a sailing pro in this week's look:
We might not have real seasons here -- no foliage, no snow, just schizoid micro-climates and changeable marine layers. But, here’s a hint that summer starts tomorrow -- sea-farers of all sorts will be out and about enjoying the Summer Sailstice, which just happens to fall on the summer solstice.
The Sailstice is a world-wide holiday celebrating sailing held annually on the longest sailing day of the year. Because, you know, we need to fill those extra few minutes with something, it might as well be water-side music, food, contests and flotation devices to benefit the Treasure Island Sailing Center.
