Yachts & Yachting Boat Test

Yachts & Yachting Boat Test

Yes folks it’s out,

Boat Test:
The new edition of Yachts & Yachting has a full boat test of the Lightning and pretty good it is too. Many thanks to John Claridge who supported the review with boats and rigs down in Lymington. Robbie Claridge sailed with Pete Barton and Pete Conway in the test sails and there is some excellent footage of the sailing on the Video Page.

Cookham Open:
Our next open event is on Saturday 14th July at Cookham Reach SC, on the Thames near Maidenhead, with easy access from the M4. Cookham is a great little club, with interesting water. Sailing on the river provides some new challenges to contend with, but is really fun. They have a nice big home fleet so there is always a good turnout and lots to see, as well as some very pretty walks along the river bank.

Full details are on the Events Info page and there is a thread running about the event in the Forum.

Matt and Stephen are once again competing in the National Schools Sailing Association championships, which this year is to be held down in Weymouth at the Olympic venue. Another opporuntity to show what the Lightning can do, we wish Matt and Stephen every success, go get’em guys!!!

Again there is a thread running in the Forum on the event, hopefully we’ll get day by day updates as last year.
