- 1) Your first time on a sailing boat?
At 3-4 years old. My father was also sailor
- 2) Your first time on a Snipe?
- 3) The most bizarre thing that happened in a regatta?
We received an invitation for the Mediterranean Trophy (1989) from Ravenna. The mail was sent from Ravenna , but the regatta was in Talsano (Taranto). We went to Ravenna and asked where is Talsano. Afther that we understood that we had to go about 800 km to the south!
- 4) What is the thing that most angers you in a race/regatta?
When I make tactical mistakes.
- 5) Which is the race/regatta that you remember with the most pleasure?
When we won European champion ship in Germany 1989 in the 420 class, in strong wind conditions
By Pietro Fantoni, SCIRA Secretary
After my article “Snipe Class and Class Promotion”, I received reports, ideas and suggestions from some countries and fleets including France, USA (Mission Bay), Argentina, Belgium, Croatia, United Kingdom and Italy.
As I said a good starting point for the Board, SCIRA countries, and fleets is to share ideas and experiences. Now I will try to summarize what I received, which hopefully will give you the Snipe sailors, fleet captains, Nationals secretaries and Board members some good inputs for improving Snipe activities at the local, national and international level.
I want to say thank you to all who responded, and I hope that other sailors will contribute their thoughts.
