We are having a championship here in Rio de Janeiro this weekend (22-23) in the same format as the Star Sailors League regattas, it is called Snipe Challenge.

Three races today with 8-10 knots and 33 boats. 50% of the fleet qualified for tomorrow races. Tomorrow we are having two short races and the top 10 of these two races qualify for the semi final. The top 5 boats of the semi final race qualify for the final race. The final race defines the champion. A different kind of racing that I believe is nice to participate sometimes and gather a good number of boats.

Snipe: Serious Sailing, Serious Fun

Campeonato Sudeste Brasileiro

Sao Paulo, April 28 - May 1, 2017

By Roberto Hackerott

Yesterday we finished the first Southeast Regional Snipe Brazilian Championship in Yacht Club Paulista - YCP, located at Guarapiranga dam, inside São Paulo metro area. This is the site where 2019 Brazilian Nationals will be held. 35 Snipes from 4 different regions joined a memorable event, including the new transitory trophy named "Bibi Juetz" a fair tribute to the most famous female Brazilian Snipe Sailor, who has just turned 80!

Copa Paulista - 4a Etapa

Guarapiranga, April 22-23, 2017. Report by Albertto Hackerott

22 Snipes joined 4th round of State event Copa Paulista um Guarapiranga Dam last weekend.

Shifty gusts from 8 to 25 knots required different abilities from sailors! The epic wooden snipe 12108, especially built for the Brazilian Worlds in 1959 brought wonderful and radical scenes to local people!

Last weekend was a long weekend for us, we had 3 days of regatas at the Guarapiranga Reservoir in São Paulo, the São Paulo Sailing Week 2017.

It was our first championship with our "brand new" boat, BERMUDA 12.108, yes, a extremely well preserved Lineburger snipe from the 1959 worlds.
