World-renowned, the SNIPE DAY is the time when veterans helmsmen of SNIPE provide their boats for young people who are looking for an alternative to sail after leaving the Optimist.

On 26 April, the Snipe Day 2015 attracted 11 young sailors and 11 Snipe Sailors: held at Yacht Club Paulista (YCP) in the Guarapiranga dam, in São Paulo, it was a great success! In the morning, the sailors attended a clinic about sail techniques, maneuvers and tactics with João Hackerott (YCSA), qualified for the Pan American Games in Toronto 2015 in Sunfish Class.

 

After that there was get-together lunch, and in the afternoon were the races were with young people at the helm. 3 races were sailed with one discard in challenging routes and winds of 12 knots.

The champion of the series was Jose Hackerott, only 14 years old, graduated in sailing school of Yacht Club Paulista (CIP-YCP). He sailed with his cousin and Snipe sailor Alberto Hackerott, and tells how he felt the conquest:

“I realized the Snipe is a very technical and complete boat. I was able to apply the concepts learned in the Optimist and Laser, which are agile boats, and Lightning, a bigger boat. Anyway, I could understand why the Snipe attracts so many young sailors around the world “- he says, glad to see that his journey in the Snipe Class is just starting.
