Sailing Through the Winter Solstice Launches 20 Boats In Carroll Creek


Ausherman Family Foundation’s Boat, “Arctic Racer” supporting The Frederick Arts Council


Sailing Through the Winter Solstice kicked off five years ago with Color On The Creek‘s Peter Kremers and Kyle Thomas. They had a vision to attract visitors to the Carroll Creek during the winter months and originally debuted their maiden voyage with one sailboat. This year marks the largest event with 20 beautifully lit boats sailing in Carroll Creek Linear Park. The boats were crafted by dedicated community members and are attracting attention from locals and tourists throughout the area.

Ausherman Family Foundation is proud to support Color on the Creek as well as the “Artic Racer” boat which was created by founders Peter Kremers and Kyle Thomas. These 2 make a great team and we couldn’t be more proud of the boat they created. Kyle has an extensive background in building and construction which he used to help build the boat over several weeks. This year, their friends and family pitched in to touch up the boat for its second year of Sailing Through the Winter Solstice.

Not only are the boats on display to beautify Downtown Frederick, but for a good cause! Community members have the opportunity to support local 501(c)3 organizations by voting for their favorite boat through donations. Each dollar donated counts as one vote. Ausherman Family Foundation’s “Artic Racer” supports the work of the Frederick Arts Council. Vote for your boat here!
