Some NICE 'Classics" you got there! looks like you like to get wet! (grin)
The Canadians across the lake (Ontario) still race those Lightnings more than folks on our side (Toronto Clubs I've seen 'em at in particular).
The poster of common sailboats i got as a kid listed the Lightning as "fast & Wet, a Real Racing Machine" - thought you'd get a chuckle from that, I still remember it without looking at it to remind me....
My "ride" on the lake is a Columbia 26 these days, bit of a different category - not "racy" like the J22 I once played with!
Watched your referenced video, now I have to make time to see more of them! Good work!
