A new scoring system was used for the 2016 Europeans and the Worlds 2017. It consists, as most of you know, on a Qualifying Series and Final Series.

For the Final Series, each competitor carries his/her Overall position of the Qualifying Serie as Race #1 of the Final Series. This Race #1 is not excluded as discard.

When César Sans and I wrote the Sailing Instructions for the Europeans 2016, we spent a lot of time on the phone (and emails) discussing how to write them to be the most clear and understandable for competitors, specially in the point about the Fleets and Scoring System. We put special care on finding the exact words to not let space to doubts. No modifications to the Sailing Instructions during the Europeans, so I guess we made a good job.

109 boats is a great number! This is the number of boats that attended the 2016 Open European Championship in Santiago de la Ribera, Spain, last September. It is a record and we can be proud!

But, as many of you know, the topic "Open or Closed Europeans" is an ongoing one. We had a lot of discussion about it on SnipeToday and some Snipe sailors are in favor of an open event. Others (I think now a minority) are for a closed event.

In August, the Promotion Committee shared a lot of ideas and, just before the Europeans, I posted an article about the Open Europeans (and Open events in general): http://www.snipetoday.org/articles/exchange-of-views/item/2979-promotion-committee-about-open-europeans-and-major-open-events-in-general

In that article I wrote: "We should again consider the same topic after the "hundred boat" Open European Championship in Santiago de la Ribera in late September 2016. It will be a good test of this open concept, and an indicator for the Snipe Class for future important decisions".

So now we can analyze the regatta we had in Spain and talk again about Open Europeans and open events in general.

As asailor, I can say that the Europeans in Spain were a great success.

Here are some details:
