Lagoa dos Esteves, May 4, 2014. Report by Enio Lineburger
Snipe Sailors !
The Lineburger Cup 2014 is over . The championship ended in a brilliantly loyal and fierce competition with the top two finishers. Felipe Linhares and Marcelo Lopes wrote theirs names again on the cup . Alex Juk and Piero Furlan were the champions in 2013 and are now vice champions with much merit.
At the closing ceremony, the name of the two times world champion Earl Elms was remembered for his excellent work in life to the Snipe Class, building wooden snipes to modern Chubascos, which were commercial opponents of Lineburger wooden boats. The 727 Fleet possesses the legendary Chubasco 19000, as a precursor of the plastic boats in Brazil.
