Snipe

The Snipe is an American sailing dinghy, designed in 1931 by William F. Crosby. It’s recognized as a World Sailing international class. This one-design racer is known for its popularity and longevity, with over 31,000 Snipes built. The Snipe features a fiberglass hull, a fractional sloop rig, a raked stem, an angled transom, and a transom-hung rudder. It’s notable for its 380 lb displacement and the use of a retractable daggerboard, allowing for shallow water operation and ease of transport. The Snipe is supported by an active class club and is used in various championships worldwide. For more detailed information, please visit the Wikipedia page on the Snipe dinghy.
