Team Wiggins Starts Off Strong!
By Laura Jeffers
The JIYC Open was the perfect event to kick off the summer and our Lightning Boat Grant experience. Having never sailed the boat together or Lightning 15475 in particular, we were excited just to be on the line with such a competitive fleet. After six really tight races, we had finished in the top three in all but one race which was a consistent enough score line to win the event by one point. Jack and Pierce kept us moving fast in the right direction all weekend and all I had to do was watch the telltales, so a huge shoutout to them!
We couldn’t be more excited for the rest of the year! Thank you to the Lightning class for this incredible opportunity. Next up the SELD District Championship!
