Big thanks to George Szabo who came out from San Diego to give us awesome, individualized and intense (but fun!) coaching. We had a… Continue reading SSA Snipe Spring Series + Clinic
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.
Sponsors are creating value for participants in the 2021 US Snipe Nationals, from great video coverage to cool swag.
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

For the 2021 Snipe Nationals we can expect almost any weather conditions, but here are some generalizations about what we might see.
The whole Annapolis Fleet – over 20 individual folks – has been meeting since January to make sure the 2021 Nationals is as good as the pandemic allows us to be! Dinners will be a la carte, but there will be Happy Hours nightly on the SSA deck for competitors to enjoy.
It was a little Frigid and breeze never got out of single Digits at the 2020 Snipe Frigid Digit, but in the world of COVID, it was a fun, crystal clear fall weekend with a great turnout of new and old Snipe sailors alike! Twenty-eight teams competed for the 2020 Atlantic Coast Champion title that was awarded to the winner of the Frigid Digit. Snipe rock stars Ernesto Rodriguez/Kathleen Tocke (Miami) had to work hard in light and variable conditions to beat up-and-coming “Next Gen” Snipe sailors Tyler Mowry/Izzy Fadullon (Annapolis/SSA) in 2nd and Charlie Miller/Lindsey Kloc (Salem MA) in 3rd. Rounding out the top 5 were Noah Zittrer/Watt Duffy (Texas) and Carol Cronin/Kim Couranz (Newport/SSA). Noah Zittrer was also given a special prize for best “First Snipe Regatta” sailor.
It was a wild, windy, shifty day at the 2020 Hospice Cup! With 20 kts sustained outside, the RC sailed 14 Snipes (and 12 Harbor 20s) in Carr's Cove in the Severn River which made it much less windy (8-15kt) but crazy shifty. Congrats to Tyler Mowry/Izzy Fadullon for squeaking out a win over Christian… Continue reading Tyler Mowry/Izzy Fadullon win Wild, Windy Hospice Cup
