Sailing incredibly consistent was the reigning Women’s World Champion, Brazilian Juliana Duque sailing with Marina Arndt. The pair won the first race, but were disqualified in the second.

Norwegians, Melsome-Myhre and Krefting, battled to win the second race of the day and lead overall with 6 points.

2019 UK Nationals

Wednesday, 08 August 2018 21:22

So the exciting news is that the 2019 National Championships is to be held over the weekend of 2nd - 4th August at Lake Bala in Wales. This is Wales's largest lake and is referred to by many as Wales's Lake Garda. Lake Bala is an excellent venue I hope you will agree with me that this is an exciting opportunity for us to take the Snipe class to somewhere new. More details will follow.
