Junior Lightning Team

Welcome Spring!

The time has come to start thinking about sailing and getting ready for the summer.

Saturday, May 11th is the annual Spring Lightning Fleet Party for Fleet 12 sailors. Join us in the Pirates Den from 4:00pm-5:00pm for an evening of food, drink and fun. You won't want to miss the buzz surrounding the upcoming NA's, to be hosted in August at the BCC.  The spring party is open to everyone: Lightning owners, crew, skippers, sailors, those interested in getting involved, as well as friends and family.  Attendance is strongly encouraged.  After the meeting, please stay for for the Sailors Dinner, featuring world-class sailor, television commentator and author: Gary Jobson. An event not to be missed.

I will once again be organizing some practices and coaching for the BCC Junior Lightning team, with the assistance other Fleet 12 Members. We will focus our efforts to help prepare for the Jr. North Amercians, August 6th-10th taking place at the BCC.
