10 Jun For Sale LN263 £600 Rupert
SAIL No 263

Famous in the class for its unique colour scheme, 263 is a well sorted boat with controls that work, a decent sail, a bottom that is pretty smooth for its age, no leaks, a good boom up cover (meaning that rigging consists of pulling the sail up and hooking on outhaul and Cunningham) and a nice trolley.




The downsides are the faded to brown hull, the star cracking on the deck and various bits of white gelcoat on the blue decks. All in all, a great Lightning to join in with a fun bunch of sailors!
