Snipe in Costa Rica

by Philip Jarman

I would like to tell you a little bit about our efforts here to establish Snipe fleet Nicoya 904.

We started  the project (January 18) hoping to achieve the rental of the governmeht parking lot at Caldera the container port on the Pacific. While the bureaucracy ground fine we purchased 2 glass boats  and a 50 year old boat from NY state. Purchased in February, they arrived in June and the work of renovation was begun. At the same time I completed the work on two plywood Snipes that I had begun in 2016. One was just launched Sunday in the picture.

SCIRA and SSL

Information needed to facilitate sailor profiles

The Star Sailors League (SSL) (http://www.starsailors.com/) - as you may already know - will include the Snipe Class in the international ranking.

It is a very ambitious project on which the Snipe Class is working together with SSL.

In fact, there will be an international ranking of our class and a global ranking, including Star Class and other Classes.

To prepare the ranking, SSL needs to build the profiles of all sailors (skippers and crews) ideally as fully as possible.

For this reason we kindly ask you to send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with the following information:
1) birthday (no mandatory for ... women) and birth place
2) class
3) usual crew (if you have it)
4) club
5) height and weight (if you would like to see it in your ranking profile)
6) your photo (if you would like to see it in your ranking profile)

We are pleased to announce that Portugal has won the bid to host the South European Championship for 2019 voted on by the majority of National Secretaries in Europe.

Please note the date: June 7-10 in Cascais, Portugal.
