Six Lightnings competed in this year’s One Design Regatta.  This year we raced in the ocean as we will be doing in next year’s North American Championship.  Jeff Coppens sailing with Tom Goddard took overall honors.  Bob Martin sailing with daughter Julie and Brian Genovese was second.  Larry Schmitz sailing with daughter Angie and Mark Baker finished third.  Winds ranged from 6 to 12 knots with an unusual amount of chop.  Bang, bang, bang!
