Mission Bay: Learning at all Levels

Wednesday, 25 January 2017 14:09

Ever since I joined the Snipe class in 1990, Fleet 495 in San Diego, CA has been a stronghold of both Serious Sailing and Serious Fun. I’ve made the trek across the USA several times for big events: US Nationals. Worlds. Western Hemispheres. This past weekend, I happened to be in town for one of their most famous “small” events: the Las Vegas Regatta on Mission Bay.

The event first started as a casual way for teams to tune up for the upcoming season, which for a few lucky locals includes a cross-country trip in March for Florida’s Midwinter Circuit. The name came from the casino/fundraiser that was traditionally held on Saturday night.

Las Vegas Regatta - Final

Monday, 23 January 2017 06:47

Mission Bay, January 22, 2017. The results stand after one day of racing - 7 races- as a major winter storm bore down on California Sunday. Only two intrepid junior teams (training for Jr Worlds) braved the elements in 20++ knots on Mission Bay with Doug Hart coaching while many of the fleet stood on shore, under heaters (with bloody mary's in hand) watching ...

Mission Bay, January 21, 2017. San Diego's Mission Bay Yacht Club fit in 7 races today between rain storms. Randy Lake and Maddy McGrath were the only team to manage all top 3 finishes on the short shifty courses. We are hoping for more racing tomorrow despite another stormy forecast.

The Day in the life of the SCIRA Office ...

Wednesday, 12 October 2016 22:20

At the recent Sailors Open Forum, a question was asked about what the SCIRA office does.... While this answer is a bit complex, I’ll try to break it down so Snipe sailors can get a feeling for what goes on in the office daily and year-round.

Believe it or not, I’ve now been in this position as Executive Director for 23 years. Big changes have happened since the first trip to the 1993 Worlds in Porto Alegre with the help of Commodore Terry Timm and Vice Commodore Horacio Garcia Pastori. Class officers and members have helped usher in many of these changes.

  • The Class transitioned from phone and faxes to email & the internet
  • www.snipe.org was one of the first Classes to create a website (thanks to Alex Pline & Steve Keckler)
  • The Class moved membership registration to an online system saving the class postage & printing costs, and is now hosted on a cloud based system
  • Global Measurement program and measurer’s guidebook was created
  • Implementation of sail royalties, realizing over $100k in revenue since its inception in 1996
  • Implementation of Snipe merchandise helping spread the brand & loyalty of members as well as gaining $50k
  • Created a regatta management package that is sent to all major regatta organizers
  • Dedicated websites have been created for Worlds, European and WH&O regattas

Report by Seth Siegler

The 2016 edition of the Herb Shear Invitational took place at Mission Bay Yacht Club this past weekend. Fleet veteran, Don Bedford kicked things off by recounting, a bit, about the life of the regatta's namesake, who (along with Earl Elms) was essentially, the father of the modern snipe as we know it. Taking to the water with a fleet full of the latest evolutions (Jibe Techs, Perssons and a DB-R1) of the snipe that Shear and Elms dreamt up (Chubasco) in the epicenter of it all (San Diego) was a pretty cool feeling.
