    Default Lightning 15451 Launch

    Well, the long-overdue launch of Lightning 15451 finally happened at the annual Wooden Lightning Rally on Keuka Lake in NY.

    It sails beautifully, but the wing nut on the tiller has a lot to learn.

    Big sigh of relief after an 8-year slog and pushing pretty hard to finish it the last few months.

    Beautiful! Lightenings are great boats one of my favorites! Learned to sail in one. Wish you many happy days sailing.

    I get by with the judicious use of serendipity.
