The International Lightning Class Association is excited to announce the 2021 Lightning World and Masters Championships will be hosted by The Carolina Yacht Club in Wrightsville Beach, NC.
This beautiful venue features ocean sailing, reliable wind, beaches, warm weather and Southern Hospitality provided by the members and staff of CYC. Beach house rentals are plentiful and many are within walking distance of the club. Make plans to bring the whole family because this regatta is going to be so much fun on and off the water. Watch the class website for more details as they become available.
Seven excellent bids to host the Worlds were submitted to the class. The evaluation committee was extremely impressed with the quality of all the bids and the effort that was put into them. I am so gratified by how these bids reflect the enthusiasm and commitment of ILCA members. A huge thank you to everyone who helped in submitting bids. I can't emphasize enough what a positive impression you all made on the evaluators about the future of our class.
