Stephan and Monica Irgens frequently win the "farthest traveled award." Based in St. Louis, MO, they are regular attendees for most of the east coast US regattas, including the Florida winter circuit, and also traveled to Poland last year for the first open European championship. Here they answer the famous 14 questions about what brought them to the Snipe originally, how they met (at a regatta of course), and what keeps them coming back for more.

1. Your first time in a sailing boat?

Stephan: We were four teenagers that had never set foot in a sailboat. The owner of an OK-jolle, about the size of a Snipe, placed us in this dinghy and pushed us out. I was the helmsman since I could handle motorboats.......There were not much wind and we sailed nicely out in the Oslo fjord but coming back was a struggle, in fact we could not make it. The owner had to swim out to get us back on land. Lesson learned, put a paddle in the boat.

Monica: I was about 13 staying with cousins at their cabin by the lake, Estavayer-le-Lac, Switzerland. They had a Vaurien, we went out sailing and the first thing they did was to capsize the boat and teach me how to bring the boat up and quick. We had fun.

2. Your first time in a Snipe?

Stephan: From the deck of my house in Åsgårdstrand, Norway, I was watching my friends sailing the Snipe Nationals. I liked the shape and form of the Snipe. It looked so right and pleasing and advanced with all those colorful control lines. I bought one of the boats and the first time in a Snipe was in my own "White Lady" with my son.

Monica: I knew about the Snipe through my friends Jane and Jan Persson. In 1993, they invited me to Santiago de la Ribera, Spain, to stay with them for the Snipe European Masters. I did not sail, but got to meet sailors and passed three fun days. There is where I met Stephan and Jerry Thompson; they were planning to go to the 1994 World's Master in Japan and said they were looking for a light crew. A month later I received a letter from Stephan asking if I would go with him to Palma de Mallorca so we could train at a Snipe regatta. I accepted, this was my first time sailing a Snipe and we won the first race.
