SNIPE MARATHON LIST FINNISH NATIONALS 2000-2016
Finnish Nationals was arranged this year in Helsinki, 69th time in a row, starting already in 1948. This is the longest yearly tradition among all One Design Classes in Finland. Snipe Class was this year the biggest double-handed-dinghy-class in Finland, based on number of participants in Nationals!
Kari Nyqvist from Snipe Fleet 523 Pori has collected interesting statistics of Finnish activity level in Nationals between 2000-2016. All together 110 skippers can be listed. Some participating one-time-only, a couple of skippers in all 17 occasions.
Interesting studies, promotion activities and membership surveys can be and will be made based on the statistics. Why only once, why continuing the tradition year by year. What reasons and motivations are critical in future especially for you when deciding whether to join or not. These are the questions that can be presented to the members. Results can be used to create even more attractive events!
We strongly encourage also other SCIRA Boards to collect and benefit from similar information in their own countries.
Know your Class, know your Members.
