Fleet 50 website changes


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

  1. In the usual way by going to LightningFleet50.org
  2. 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 nabeel.alsalam@gmail.com) if you have comments or suggestions.

2021 Spring Regatta

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.
