Report by Marcus Ward

The Snipe Rocky Mountain Championship was sailed last weekend in some of the best conditions Colorado has to offer by 22 boats.

The 736 acre Union Reservior in Longmont was home to the event. Winds were 8-12 both days, sunny, with perfect weather. Sailors local to the lake marveled at the conditions because we rarely have wind that steady, and never 2 days in a row!

The 1996 Midwinter Regatta in Clearwater

Tuesday, 11 September 2018 07:30

by Gonzalo "Old Man" Diaz

According to the report in  the May 1996 Snipe Bulletin: There was no races the first two days as winds were 25 to 40 knots.  Tuesday morning, although the forecast was still very bad (35 knots of wind), the day looked good so the RC sent the Fleet out.  20 of the 27 boats registered went out.  For the first race they had 12 to 15 knots. For the second race the winds continued to build up.  By the start of the 3rd. race wind had stepped up to 25 knots the reaches were a blast with the big breeze and six-foot breakers. In the second reach the wind hit 30 knots and people started to drop out.  Only 10 boats made it to the finish line. Hal Gilreath finished 4th but Charlie Bustamante and John McRae dropped out of the race. Both Hal and Charlie made it alright to the Club, but John ended up in the beach with a broken mast.

1975 US Nationals Program - Green Lake

Thursday, 30 August 2018 07:28

Green Lake, Winsconsin, August 16-22, 1975

This was a US Nationals with 129 Snipes

by Lee Griffith

Three weeks before this year's Green Lake Nationals I was moving some stacks of old magazines and I looked down and there was the Program from the 1975 Green Lake Nationals!! I didn't even remember that I had it, just sheer coincidence! I guess I spent 50 cents on it.
 
I took it to the regatta and it was fun to page through it. We found out that the Heidel House Honey's (last page advertisement) are no longer performing (the pub burned down), and this year's organizers didn't have Speed Queen washing machines as one of the full page advertisers.
