To celebrate Summer Sailstice, the worldwide celebration of sailing that happens on the weekend closest to the summer solstice (www.summersailstice.com), I thought it would be fun to join in by going sailing with friends in San Diego, one of my favorite places. After finding a Groupon deal with Pacifica Sailing Charters, we booked our sailing trip with Captain Mick and headed out in the water together. The weather was perfect and Mick was both entertaining and more than happy to share his knowledge and love of sailing with the crew. While the deal was for a 2 hour cruise, we got to sail leisurely for extra time, and it was both relaxing and fun. Sitting back, sipping on rosé, watching the seals and all kinds of boats out in the water, it was the best way to see more of San Diego and kick off summertime and the sailing season! There are many sailing companies to choose from, but I highly recommend Pacifica Sailing Charters for any sailing excursions in sunny San Diego.
