FLASH and Flashbytes – News-briefs

FLASH and Flashbytes – News-briefs

FLASH is the quarterly Class newsletter, it is available to members of the Class Association in both paper and electronic formats and is between twelve and sixteen pages long. It is not sponsored, so there is very little advertising and lots of useful info, opinions, comments and advice about Lightnings and sailing them.

We keep at least the last ten editions on the website, under the CA Members Tab, however, you do need to be a CA Member to access these pages.

FLASH is typically and mix of Class news, sailing tips and advice, boat related articles like repair schemes, event info and something about experiences’ or intrepid adventures. It is always amusing, often informative and generally a talking point. We very much welcome content and articles from Members and Non-Members alike. We’ve had Lightning sailing in the North Atlantic (well Pentland Firth), Notes from Galway Ireland, our further west Lightning and everything in between.

A sample edition of FLASH can be found here: Sample Edition of FLASH

 

Flashbytes are short e-mail based news-briefs that are e-mailed to Class Association members, registered users of this website and others interested in the Class.

They are not published to any kind of schedule, but appear when there are a few useful updates to pass around the Class, typically there are one or two a month.

You can subscribe to them by e-mailing the Lightning Webmaster, Wayne Jenner, on the link below:
