Good stuff from the Lightning class….

The International Lightning Class Association (ILCA) is accepting applications for the fourth year of its incredibly successful Boat Grant Program, which puts race-ready Lightnings into the hands of young sailors who might otherwise not have the opportunity. The deadline for the 2010 program is December 31, 2009. Applications can be found at here. The ILCA class website also has reports and video from past years’ grantees as well as additional information about the Lightning Class.

The ILCA Boat Grant Program provides each recipient a top quality racing Lightning with trailer, practice and racing sales, insurance, help with regatta expenses, and support from an established Lightning sailing mentor. The program provides young sailors, students, or those just beginning their working careers, who can’t afford to buy and campaign a competitive 3-person dinghy like the Lightning, with all they need to sail against some of the best racers in the world.
