Or  how to have a good number of boats at our main events

Open Letter to the National Secretaries: by Pietro Fantoni - SCIRA Commodore

These are difficult times for sailing in general, and the numbers are going down in many events and for many classes. Sometimes, somewhere and for some reason a regatta can be a great success in term of number of boats.

For example last year the US Nationals in Winchester (Boston area) attracted 53 boats, the biggest participation in recent memory, on one of the smallest lakes used for Snipe sailing.

This past Saturday was a REMARKABLE experience at the Atlanta Yacht Club. The Snipe Fleet hosted the first annual Marshmallow Intergalactic Championship, aka, THE MIC, in which 31 sailors, organized into 15 teams of one experienced sailor and one beginner, participated. Most of the less experienced sailors skippered the boats. In that group we had 9 guests sailing, some for the very first time. We had a total of 17 fleet member boats prepared for the event.

World Snipe Day 2018

Dear National Secretaries,

Class promotion is one of the main aspects to work on and the fleet activity is the fulcrum of the promotion.

A lively fleet promotes events, regattas, clinics, training sessions, parties among its members, but should also focuses its attention outside on other sailors.

The aim is to attract new people to our Class by helping them discover our wonderful boat.

This is the reason why the Board warmly encourages fleets in all countries to organize a World Snipe Day, at the best time of year for such activities in your region.
