International Lightning Class Association News

The International Lightning Class Association has announced a new boat grant programme that will award two young teams with a competitive boat, substantial regatta subsidies for a season of racing, as well as mentoring and coaching.

The goal is to expose more youth racers to the ILCA circuit so they can experience the high level of competition offered by the class.

Steve DAVIS, President of the International Lightning Class Association, said, 'The Lightning has everything to offer young sailors: great competition, a three-person crew, and an easy-to-transport performance boat.'

He continued, 'The only drawback is that it can be a challenge to campaign a competitive boat when you're just starting a job out of college. That's where this programme comes in, helping bridge that gap.'
