Lightning Fleet 112

Welcome to the web page for Lightning Fleet 112.  The Lightning, a 19-foot trailerable centerboard sloop, was originally designed by Sparkman & Stephens as an affordable family daysailer and racing boat. It has evolved into one of the most popular and competitive one-design racing classes in the world.  The Lightning’s rig is simple, but offers sophisticated sail shape controls. The hull features a unique hard chine design that combines the stability that provides sail-carrying power, with flat bottom sections that promote planing.

Sailing out of Windjammers Sailing Club, Fleet 112 hosts club races on Thursday evenings from May to September.  A racing schedule can be found HERE  The current sailing instructions for fleet racing can be found HERE

Fleet 112 also has hosted the annual Evans Regatta since 1970.  A listing of past champions can be found HERE
