Snipe Sailor of the Year 2016

Sunday, 01 January 2017 19:49

Birger Jansen, with his crew Janett Krefting, was voted Snipe Sailor of the Year.

Birger passed away in November after a long battle. In September he was in Santiago de la Ribera for sailing the Europeans and meeting his Snipe family. It was his last regatta. This year, in May he was able to sail and win the Majsnipen, an important regatta in Sweden, despite his illness.

Birger was SCIRA Commodore, European Champion and many times Norwegian Champion. But first of all he was friend to all.

  • Stefano Longhi and Eleonora Zuzic: 12%
  • Maria Ohrn and Steffan Skjonberg: 6%
