Sailing has been in Trixy’s blood since she was a little girl when she started in the Optimist Class at age seven. When she aged out, it was no surprise that she chose the Snipe. Her dad started sailing Snipes when he was 18.
She’s excited that the Snipe is a really complete boat, one that can be sailed competitively by young and old, big and small, because the boat can be tuned to the conditions of the day. You still have to use your head to finish well, tactics are very important. Most of all it’s a fun boat to sail, especially when you finish 2nd at the Snipe Women’s Worlds.
