Bay City’s Lightning Fleet 216 and the Saginaw Bay Community Sailing Association (SBCSA) want to encourage young sailors by providing an opportunity to competitively sail a Lightning Sailboat for 1 year at minimal cost. The grantee will be provided a competitive boat and sails, insurance, and a Bay City Yacht Club “One Design Membership” which includes full facility use and storage for the trailer-launched grant boat on site for one year.
The recipient will be assigned a “mentor” from the local fleet with lots of Lightning knowledge to help you get started, show you how to rig and tune the boat, boat handling techniques and other hints. The mentor will help you with some coaching, regatta planning, and even sail with you from time to time. At the end of the season, the boat may be available for purchase.
