Starting in early October, the LightningFleet50.org website will be located in a new place under the potomacriversailing.org website.
You will be able to get to the website
- In the usual way by going to LightningFleet50.org
- By going to potomacriversailing.org, clicking fleets at the top, and choosing Lightnings.
The primary motivation for this change is to avoid having to duplicate posts on both the potomacriversailing.org and lightningfleet50.org websites and to have one more dynamic website that, we hope, will attract more new sailors to both PRSA and its fleets and encourage repeat visits from current members.
The Lightning website will have news, reports, and other information specific to Lightnings. General information of interest to all PRSA’ers will be available on the main potomacriversailing.org homepage.
Email Tom Hutton (PRSA Commodore at PRSACommodore@gmail.com), Jeff Witten (LightningFleet50@gmail.com) or me (Nabeel webguy at firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have comments or suggestions.
Here is where the Championship Series Stands:
Piercarlo and Jeff had a match race that was tied until the last race.
It was a rainy, cool, and windy weekend. John Van Voorhis braved race 1 of 3 on Saturday – the tougher day by far. Then he and Aaron Boesenecker did the 5 races on Sunday. Aaron took 5 bullets that day and won the regatta.
Sailflow and Reagan National Airport report of the winds. Results below.
Spring Regatta Results
We have now had 35 races in the championship series. Here are the cumulative results:
Jeff Witten, Bobby Astrove, and I did race committee for the regatta along with help from the I-20 fleet.
These results are on Regatta Network but are duplicated in St Pete for the purpose of the year-long championship scoring.
Beautiful spring day with warm southerly breezes that got sporty at times. John Van Voorhis and team gave us 4 reasonably long Olympic course races. The races took about 30 minutes each. The first reach was close to down wind and the second could be tight at times.
The wind was crazy, but the air was beautiful and the sun shone.

A beautiful spring day. The wind did shift from west to south during the day. The RC gave us 5 races.
