Welcome to the New Snipe Class Website
by Reino Suonsilta – SCIRA General Secretary Europe
Welcome to join the new snipe.org website. It is not just an update of the official Snipe Class site but also includes the daily news and discussion blog content of SnipeToday.
SCIRA Board approached the editors of SnipeToday early last year to discuss how we could best serve the communication needs of the Snipe family. From the very beginning it was obvious that it makes sense to unite the efforts of snipe.org and SnipeToday to form a streamlined and updated platform that combines the best of both worlds.
It is great to have this new site up and running just now, in the beginning of the Snipe Class 90th anniversary year. This is another visible demonstration of the positive drive and progress of our Class. New platform further improves clear and timely communication which is so vital to the success of an international class like Snipe. It is a tool for all of us to bring the Snipe sailors around the world closer together.
Board wants to thank everyone who have contributed to building this new tool, especially the SnipeToday editors Pietro Fantoni and Carol Cronin. Please continue to give your feedback and suggestions to fine-tune the new site.
We are all looking forward to using the new snipe.org to review the official facts and rules and enjoy the news and great pictures of the events of this Snipe Class 90th anniversary year. From the Snipe Worlds in August to the smallest fleets every week.
