The Snipe class is serious about attracting the next generation of sailors.  At the Quantum Snipe Nationals, there will be a new trophy award to the top performing skipper under the age of 30.  Art Rousmaniere, US Class Secretary has indicated strong support for young sailors. As such this summer we will be doing number of things to attract and train young sailors. Things include:

  • Snipe Sailing for the college sailor – June 29,30 – Winchester, MA
  • Borrowed boat evening series – June 5- July 15 – Beverly, MA
  • Nationals Warmup event July 14 – Beverly, MA

With the addition of an Under 30 trophy and as many as 15 slots open for the Western Hemisphere championship in 2020 (Winthrop, MA) there are lots of chances to get into a Snipe and compete at the highest levels of sailing.

The class and event organizers are determined to find boats for any interested sailors. If you want to sail, come find us. Shan McAdoo: r19slr at yahoo dot com
