After a year off from active snipe sailing due to pregnancy, I [Stacey Szabo] jumped back in a boat and participated in the 2013 Womens Snipe Nationals in Fort Lauderdale, Fl. I was able to sail with experienced snipe crew Julia Melton.
On Christmas day, Rebecca McElvain and Scott Sinks traveled to Miami Florida to compete in the 2013 Orange Bowl International Youth Regatta. This was our first major regatta sailing together in C420s, so we were excited to test our skills against the country.
Paris Henken and Aine Fretwell completed the Women's Snipe Nationals, their first regatta together, with a fifth place out of 21 boats. Paris learned a lot about the snipe and found it really exciting to be able to sail outside her normal skiff sailing.
