Boat Grant Program

Who Should Apply:

This program is geared towards young adult sailors with a desire to race the Lightning.  Minimum age of 19.

You could be a sailor on a College sailing team looking to augment your dinghy sailing skills in a larger boat or to test your ability against larger fleets.

You could be a recent College graduate with lots of desire to get into a competitive one-design class, but you lack the funds to purchase a boat.

Are you a female team with Olympic aspirations? Each of the top 5 Ynglings at the 2003 US trials had at least one team member with substantial time in a Lightning: Betsy Allison, Carol Cronin, Liz Filter, Carrie Howe, Melissa Purdy, Jody Swanson, Hannah Swett, and Cory Sertl.
