Greg Fisher of North Sails has agreed to hold a clinic on Snipe racing for us at the Halloween Regatta!!
A long time snipe sailor and sail maker, Greg has been concentrating on other classes since North Sails bought out his loft. He is the present J22 World Champion as well as the Thistle National Champion. He was second this year in the Interlake Nationals and the Thistle Midwinters West. He is a past winner in the Lightening North Americans, the Flying Scott North Americans, the Highlander Nationals, the Johnson 18 Nationals, the Y-Flyer Midwinters, the Snipe Don Q – and especially – Halloween Regatta! He was Chair of the One Design Council for US Sailing and the Championship of Champions Committee and a member of the Van Allen Clark Sportsmanship Committee. In addition, he is a great teacher and a role model for us all in the qualities we want in a winner.
Well start with on-the-water instruction Friday afternoon, October 24, at 3:00 and end with an on-land session that night after supper.
