Junior Lightning Team

Welcome Spring!

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

Saturday April 28th is the annual Spring Lightning Fleet Party for Fleet 12 sailors. Join us in the Pirates Den from 4pm-7pm for an evening of food, drink and fun. You won't want to miss the spectacular drone footage from the 2018 Southern Circuit on the big screen.  This event is open to everyone: Lightning owners, crew, skippers, sailors, those interested in getting involved, as well as friends and family.  Attendance is strongly encouraged.

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 Lightning Youth Worlds in Voula, Greece, July 3rd-7th and the Jr. NA's this year at the Pontiac Yacht Club in Keego Harbor, Michigan, August 2-5.
