In the interest of growing the Snipe class and expanding the skills of current members, the US Class plans to host clinics and pre-event learning sessions leading up to the US Nationals in July. These will be offered in borrowed boats, with the intention that any racing sailor may join. Star World Champion, Snipe expert and Quantum Pro, George Szabo, says, “Quantum is excited to continue and expand our support of the Snipe class. We hope that these events will help this year’s Nationals achieve a record number of boats, and introduce the Snipe to more sailors.”
