Re: Boys first time out on Lightning
Good for you & your boys!
I happen to think that a low wind day for a first sail on a Lightning is a good thing. It is kind of amazing how little wind it takes to make a Lightning move, if just a bit. Good first lesson. did you fly the chute(spinnaker) or wasn't there enough wind?
The lessons will change as the wind speeds increase.
I watched Lightnings race in a regatta yesterday on the Hudson river in about 20 knots of wind.
