the Lightning Fleet recently had its winter meeting. We will be racing on Tuesday nights with 6:30 p.m. starts and a short course format with legs of approximately .5 miles. Double windward-leeward courses will be run with the hope of getting in two races per evening, weather permitting. No entry fees will be charged.
In other news, the Midwest Lightning District meeting was held in Sheboygan Jan. 31. The Sheboygan Yacht Club will be hosting its premier Lightning regatta, the Brotz Regatta, Aug. 29-30. Representatives from Sheboygan invited us up to race with them on that weekend. One more spring meeting will be held in April before we start racing Tuesday, May 26.
