Snipe Junior Program at AVB in Bracciano

Wednesday, 02 November 2016 20:48

Let me say that this is a story about a "beginning" just.

It comes from several issues I faced during last years and I'll try to list them here:

1. Snipers' average-age keeps growing, and there's a quite dangerous lack of new people in the Snipe Class

2. In many western Countries (first of all Italy) there's a close to 100% rate of abandon from young kids sailing in the pre-Olympic Classes (mainly Lasers) as they become adult, let's say as they finish high school and move to University (in business-slang we'd say: there's a retention rate of kids passing from pre-Olympic Classes to Olympic Classess (or adult sailing) damn close to zero);

3. That massive abandon-rate is literally emptying not only the Snipe Class, but all the other Classes (many of them are already close to extinction), big-boats racing and Sailing Clubs as well;

4. In many Clubs there are unused Snipes: boats left under a cover for years, sometimes more than ten years, from owners whom quit Snipe sailing for several reasons: age, family commitments, or general economic downturn, a condition which stopped people from sailing and prevented the selling of the boat due to the lack of demand for used boats.

So the general question was: how to fix those issues, or at least some of them?
