"After two years of being away from a structured sailing program and being on the water almost every day, I have been exploring ways of getting back into competitive sailing in a way that it affordable." explains Wolcott." This past fall I sailed my first ever lightning event...After two days of great sailing in various breeze conditions, I knew that I wanted to apply. The International Lightning Class Association's Boat Grant Program is the ideal way for me to continue sailing against some of our sport's most talented sailors."
Gordon got a taste of sailing Lightnings last summer and revealed that the competitive fleets and camaraderie is what led him to apply for the program.
