21 May For Sale LN290 £550 Trevor
I have owned Lightning 290 since 1994 when she was about 18 months old. LN290 is a little “too lively” for me now, in all but the gentlest wind so reluctantly I have decided to sell her.

Lightning 290 is in good condition apart from a few scuffs. She is in the original Mark Giles layout, with a dark blue hull and light grey deck. It has its original well used but still serviceable sail and a little used storm sail, a rudder cover and a good “mast up” deck cover. The mast is a Needlespar and one of the rare two piece design.

There is a combi galvanised launch trolley with Mark Giles cradle and road trailer.

LN214 has a sail in very good condition. Hull quite elderly but no obvious damage, just the usual scratches etc.

Hull is grey and the top deck is pink … hence the name: ‘Pink Gin’. Mast, Boom and rigging in good condition.

Rudder and Tiller made by I.Y.E. in good condition.

Launching trolley quite adequate. Top Cover has seen better days, repaired with tape.
