NEW Home for Classic Boat Discussion Group

Published on 10/29/2019

As a result of service changes to “yahoo groups” we have been forced to relocate our platform for new & 14 years of historical discussions related to wooden and classic fiberglass Lightning’s.  All are welcome to participate or “lurk”.


The discussion group is for all interested in Classic Lightning Class Sailboats.   Members of this group own, are former owners, or are enthusiasts for the Lightning.  A classic Lightning is one built of wood or one of the early fiberglass boats, typically built prior to the early 1980's.

In addition to supporting each other with discussions of maintenance, boat construction, rigging, tuning, racing, daysailing, boat camping and more,  We hold an annual “Get Together” / Regatta.  The date for 2020 is not set yet, but typically it is the last weekend in June, and will be held on Keuka Lake, near Hammondsport, New York in the beautiful Finger Lakes region.


You can sign yourself up by going to in your browser, register, and join the group classic-lightning.  Or just send me an email and I will send you an invitation link,
