CPYC has been home to Lightning Fleet 126 for over 40 years. The race schedule includes a Saturday summer series and three Commodore's Cup Series over the holiday weekends. CPYC also hosts 1 - 2 regattas each year (in 2013, this included the 75th Lightning North American Championships) Typically, this means 30+ races each season without ever having to hook up a trailer!
The Lightning is a 19 foot, three-person boat with an outstanding class organization and fleets throughout the world. The boat is affordable, fun to sail, and has withstood the test of time. See www.lightningclass.org.
