In about 1 month when the first signal is set at the Quantum Snipe Nationals, there will be collegiate all Americans, Olympians, world champions and a Rolex Yachtsman of the year, in the fleet. The 36 registered boats are coming the the Jubilee Yacht Club in Beverly, MA for the July 18-21, 2019 event. The organizers are projecting as many as 55 boats in the fleet at first signal.
Also sailing in the fleet will be husband and wife teams, parent and child teams as well as some recent and current college sailors. Jim Grubbs, from Long Beach, California is doing a cross country road trip with his son Barrett and making Snipe Nationals one of their stops. Don’t worry Jim we won’t tell the locals you are also planning to hit up a Cubs game on your way home. Pietro Fantoni, the current SCIRA international commodore will also be sailing.
Art Rousmaniere, Paul Earl and the organizing team at JYC have been working feverishly to remove any barrier so everyone can attend. As part of this effort, we will also be hosting the esteemed “Pickle Bowl” this year during the last 2 days of Nationals. The Pickle Bowl is for sailors who want to sail in the fleet, but cannot get the time away. You are part of the Snipe Family, we want to find a way to include you.
The Snipe class is a unique mix of sailing talent, tradition and fun. In the Quantum Nationals Fleet, there will be 3rd and maybe 4th generation Snipe sailors who have learned the sport and the boat as a family tradition. Combined with a group of amazing sailors this is a great combination of “Serious Sailing, Serious Fun”.
There is still time to get registered and get here. The organizers would be thrilled if this were the biggest Snipe Event in North America this year. Come one, come all we have beeah, lobstah, oystahs, burgahs, a great club and a great sailing venue.
