Lightning Racing for Adults

In recent years, we have seen a heightened interest among community members for Lightning racing!

The Club has a Lightning of its own for junior sailing instruction and club members, and some club members have bought their own boats, in the hopes of drawing the surrounding community into some spritely competition.

There is no charge to enter our informal races and non-members pay only the $10 launch fee.

Time: After July 1st - Saturdays at 2:00pm. No charge.

 Mid-week races are also arranged ad hoc by mutual agreement, often involving the Learn to Sail Instructors and senior students.

For 2022 these informal Lightning races will only be arranged if the current Sail Canada and Sail Nova Scotia Covid-19 requirements can be complied with for all boats participating.

Contact Tom Mitchell for more information, and by noon Thursday each week in the summer to commit for Saturday.
