International Snipe Class
The International Snipe is an internationally renowned racing dinghy; it is one of the largest classes in the world. There are many things that make this boat so popular, not least the extremely competive racing and clear sense of enjoyment snipe sailors experience the world over. The Snipe has beautiful racing lines and can be sailed by sailors of all ages in most conditions - even in strong wind and heavy sea. Snipes are well built and will hold their value for years while not suffering from any degradation in racing performance that other dinghies may suffer.
