We have just received word that the Pan American sailing Federation met last weekend and released the minutes of their meeting. It seems that they decided that for the 2015 Pan Am Games to be held in Toronto Canada, the Snipe has been replaced by the 49er.
This is a major blow to the Snipe sailors in the Western Hemisphere. We hope this decision is not final and the SCIRA Board of Governors is planning a response to best present reasons why the Snipe, the only class to have been in ALL PAN AM GAMES should be retained.
The announcement can be viewed at http://panamsailing.org/report-to-the-pasaf-member-national-authorities/
More will be communicated as soon as we have more information.
