Re: Lightning Pilot in Ann Arbor or Lansing

You stand on the center board to right. The lighting is designed to be raced with 3. You can sail solo with just the main the jib sheets are far from the tiller. Don't put the main sheet in the cleat keep it free to let out fast. Not sure you can right a lighting by yourself. I flip mine years ago and it took 3 of us to right. Once it went stick down turtle with a masthead float you shouldn't have to worry about that.
