Wooden and Classic Lightning Class Sailboat Group classic-lightning@groups.io

Group for all interested in Classic Lightning Class Sailboats.   Members of this group own, are former owners, or are enthusiasts for the Lightning.  A classic Lightning is one typically built of wood or one of the early fiberglass boats, typically built prior to the early 1980's. We are part of the International Lightning Class Association, and strongly encourage participants of this site to also be current members of the I.L.C.A.

 Lightning Class Association Web Site.

In addition to supporting each other with discussions of maintenance, boat construction, rigging, tuning, racing, daysailing, boat camping and more,  We hold an annual “Get Together” / Regatta.  Typically held the last weekend in June and will be held on Keuka Lake, near Hammondsport New York in the beautiful Finger Lakes region.
