Junior Lightning Team

Welcome Spring!

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

Saturday, May 11th there will be an important meeting about the WJM/North American's to be followed by the annual Spring Lightning Fleet 12 Party. Join us at 3pm in the Dining Room. Plese consider staying for the Sailor's Dinner which will follow. It promises to be an evening of food, drink and fun. 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.
