Wiki

The Lightning is a small and light weight single hander, which is competitive and fun to sail. It has a good weight range and can be competitively sailed by helms from 50 to 90 Kgs. We have a wide age range sailing the boat and a good number of lady helms taking part in our Open Series events. The controls are well laid out along the gunwales with a centre main and a proper halyard for the sail, meaning it can be lowered whilst afloat. It has a centreboard rather than a dagger, meaning it is easier to launch and recover and is not in the way in a small boat.

WHO WE ARE

We are a sailing club, affiliated to the RYA, that welcomes families and individuals new to sailing or experienced. We provide training and coaching for adults and young people, to develop skills towards taking part in the club racing programme and beyond.
