The Lightning is 40 year old this year and as they say ‘life begins at 40!’ with John rolling out the Mark 3 Lightning. Join the association and in the yearbook you will read the full story of why these changes came about and how its made the boat more fun to sail, easier to recover without making the old boat less competitive.

Who can forget the gales we sailed in at Thorpe Bay last year! Well all of you who did not go I suppose… Don’t miss out this year, with free camping on the grass on the seafront and great sailing you would be missing out if you don’t give it a go. And don’t worry its the Thames not real sea sailing. Let Thorpe Bay know if you are bringing a camper or tent. No caravans sorry.
