Beverly, July 13, 2013. A forecast of light wind and an overcast morning couldn’t crush the spirits of the 25 eager Snipe teams, representing roughly 5 fleets spanning North America from Florida all the way to Canada. The Snipe New England Championship fleet sailed approximately two miles out to race 5 races in 5-9 knots of wind. The champions of the day were Peter Commette and Jensen McTighe, closely follwed by Jim Bowers/Julia Marsh. But never fear! Tomorrow is another day filled with serious sailing and serious fun.
The traditional haddock dinner was a great success, supplemented by pizza for the non-fish eaters and also followed by a raffle. Tomorrow’s prizes include Snipe parts and pieces donated by some of the many sponsors:
Mr. Anonymous, ArtLog, Inc, Kinder Industries, Cape Ann Brewing, Sailors Tailor, Quantum Sails, West Marine, Chris Small Boatworks and Harvey Rigging.
