With the first regatta of the season only weeks away (actually the Florida Winter Series has already started) I wanted to remind everyone to renew your membership in the Lightning Class. Your dues are very important to supporting all of the services the class provides. Membership directly supports the daily communication between 150 Fleets and nearly 1,700 members in 10 countries. This includes maintaining and developing the class web site, communication including the newsletters, and keeping all historical records. It also ensures that we have a live person, our Executive Secretary Laura Jeffers, who manages Class business and handles day to day operations!
If you are not a boat owner I strongly recommend you sign up as a crew. It’s only $10 a year and you will receive the E Flashes and Flash Blasts which provide a lot of very up to date information about things happening in the class.
The link to the membership signup page on the class website to sign up as either a new or renewing member is: http://www.lightningclass.org/membership/joinRenew/membershipLogin.asp
Thanks very much and hope to see you out on the water soon.
