Boat Grant Program

Lightning Blasting Upwind

The International Lightning Class will again provide 3 boats to promising young sailors like you! If you’re over 19, consider this your personal invitation to apply!

You’ll get the best equipment.Race-winning boats with new sails, new rigging, covers and an assigned Lightning Class mentor to help you get to the front. In the boat park you’ll become part of a group that genuinely wants you to do your best and enjoy every weekend! On the water, those same people will do all in their power to keep you behind them. Would you want it any other way?

The Lightning class was fun on and off the water and we enjoyed every second of it. Everyone we met only wanted to make sure our team was having a great time and that we had everything we needed, which was made for a pretty amazing experience! – Jordan Wiggins, Boat Grant Skipper, College of Charleston ‘20.

Oh yeah, did we mention the boat is free?!

The program also covers all your entry fees and some of your travel expenses. The Lightning Class has been a vital experience for many of the best racers in the World. Could you use an experience like that?
