Lightning Fleet 90 Open House
The Kitsilano Yacht Club and Lightning Fleet 90 invite you to join us on Saturday, June 8th for an all-day event.
Everything You Always Wanted to Know about a Lightning (But Were Afraid to Ask)
For those that have never heard of them, Lightning's are sloop rigged sailing dinghies originally designed in 1938 with room in the cockpit for four to day-sail, or a crew of three when racing. Lightnings have been sailed on English Bay since before the fleet was founded in 1945. Today's Lightning is not your grandfather's Lightning and fleets are active around the world. Come to the event and check out our Fleet page for more info!
Schedule of Events:
11AM to 1PM – Coffee in the Clubhouse with experienced Lightning sailors. Learn about Lightnings, the fun, the facts, the financials.
1PM to 4PM – Sailing! We aim to get everyone a chance to go for a ride!
