Rios & Reifkohl Gonzalez Thrive in Solid Breeze; Take Lead at Snipe Nationals

The 52-boat Snipe fleet reveled in a southerly that steadily built over the course of three races today. The second day of U.S. Snipe Nationals featured breeze from 7 to 15 knots with some higher gusts in the second and third races.

Raul Rios/Andrea Riefkohl Gonzalez mastered the conditions and sailed to finishes of 3-1-2 to move into first place overall. The team of Ernesto Gonzales/Kathleen Tocke won the day with a 1-2-1 and sit in second place. Enrique Quintero/Charlie Bess found success as well with 2-9-4 and moved up to third.

As is standard in the Snipe fleet, the racing and overall scores are very tight. With two more days and five races scheduled to complete, there’s lots of opportunities for teams to make big moves.

Tonight competitors will gather for the annual SCIRA US meeting to share ideas and thoughts on Snipe sailing in the United States and on how the class can keep making regattas even more fun and competitive than they already are. Then they’ll continue the camaraderie already evident both on the water and in the boat park after sailing.

The forecast for Severn Sailing Association’s racing area in the Chesapeake Bay off Annapolis calls for southwest winds at 10 to 15 knots tomorrow, with a chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon. The first race tomorrow is scheduled for 11 a.m.
