Whether you are attending Snipe Nationals for the Serious Sailing, the Serious Fun, or hopefully BOTH, get PSYCHED for all the great values being added by our gracious sponsors.
The Swag Store is LIVE! The Nationals Team has put together a full complement of cool Snipe gear that lets you choose your own style: Are you a cotton shirt guy? Polo gal? Love the tech material? Hat more your style? YOU CHOOSE! Instead of giving away a shirt you may or may not wear, the 2021 Nationals Regatta will give you the coupon equivalent of a cotton tshirt ($10 per person) that you can use to either redeem a FREE cotton tshirt (in a multitude of colors) OR you can apply the coupon towards any of the other higher end offerings.
WE ARE LIVE! The Notice of Race is posted and Registration is open for the #2021SnipeNationals. Regatta Fee increases May 23rd and refunds are given until then, so there is no risk to register early. Get your registration ON! Head over to Clubspot: https://theclubspot.com/regatta/rGPDAxmlZE

2020 Frigid Digit chosen as ACC's! Thanks to the hard work of SSA and the compliance of Marylanders to keep our COVID rates low, the Annapolis Snipe Fleet is happy to announce that we will be hosting our annual Frigid Digit on Oct 3-4, 2020. Because we are one of the few venues able to host regattas in the Midatlantic Region, the Frigid Digit has been chosen as the temporary home of the Atlantic Coast Championships (we look forward to going back to Surf City next year!).
Despite the heat, there was sailable, remarkably consistent breeze both days and once on shore with a drink in hand in the shade of the awnings on the top deck, the socially distant vibe was excellent.
