Lightnings - 4 under spinnaker

Greetings Sailors and Happy Spring!

Our Lightning Dixie District sailing season started this weekend with the Moonshine Regatta and next on the calendar is the 35th Annual Doc Gilbert Potomac Cup, May 11-12th at Leesylvania State Park.

I wanted to invite you to our signature regatta in beautiful Leesylvania State Park and ask that you please pass this email along to your Lightning friends. We fortunate once again welcome back Bruce Bingham as our PRO and will be looking forward to hosting a great event for everyone. We realize that May brings a full calendar of events for your calendars, but we would like to make sure our regatta is part of your schedule!

Ways You Can Help:

1) Sign-Up! The more boats we have signed up, the greater the turnout! Please sign up on the “Who Coming” on the ILCA racing calendar: https://lightningclass.clubexpress.com/content.aspx?page_id=4002&club_id=93488&item_id=849346

2) Register. Please register Regatta Network (also listed on the ILCA Racing Calendar). Please click on the link http://www.regattanetwork.com/event/18807 to register. A strong showing of registered boats will encourage others who may not have attended recently to come sail with us again.

3) Spread the word…ask other fleet members if they are planning to attend or forward this email to other Lightning Sailors to get them involved. If you have any questions or need additional information or help with housing, please let me know.

4) Please volunteer at the Leesylvania State Park Clean up on Saturday, May 4th from 9:00-12:00pm.  This is how we give back to Leesylvania State Park for allowing us the opportunity to have the pavilion and camp on site for our event. We need volunteers to make this happen…Ask you friends and family if they would like to give a few hours of their time to help support a beautiful state park and our sailing club!please see the attached flyer for additional details.

On behalf of Fleet 50, we are looking forward to hosting everyone once again and having a memorable event! We can’t wait to see you in Leesylvania on the 11th-12th.
