Sailing Fearless is a provider of an official stake boat (Odyssey) for America's Cup, the world’s greatest sailing competition taking place in San Francisco for the first time since 1851 which may not be back for years to come. As a stake boat, Odyssey will form part of the perimeter of the America's Cup race course offering premium viewing of the AC72 catamarans with an unobstructed view of the competition.

As part of the Summer Sailstice celebration, Sailing Fearless will be offering a special deal at their booth on the following charters:

Charter tickets include catering provided by one of San Francisco’s finest restaurants Arlequin – of the Absinthe Restaurant Group with a fully staffed professional crew attentive to all guests’ needs. Odyssey also offers a live feed and commentary via two HDTV’s inside the cabin, a spacious main salon with wet bar and large seating area, outdoor and indoor seating with protection from the weather, and a 360 degree view of the bay. With “gyro-controlled hydraulic stabilizers”, the yacht provides extreme stability regardless of sea conditions.

Now in its 13th year, the Summer Sailstice sailing holiday invites all sailors to join together by hoisting their sails wherever they are, aboard whatever they sail and showcasing to the world the “who, what, where, why and how” of sailing. While just one day in the life of sailing, Summer Sailstice is the one day all sailors sail and celebrate ‘together’. 2012 saw the largest Summer Sailstice celebration yet with sailors in all 50 US states and over 40 countries participating.

Sailors joining in the 2013 Summer Sailstice sign up for free at and win free prizes from sailing industry partners, creating Sailstice events, recruiting crew, inviting others to their events, posting stories and learning about other Sailstice events being organized in their areas.
