The Snipe is a double-handed sailboat for all sailors, from beginners to advanced sailors. Not too big and not too small. At fifteen and a half feet, the Snipe weighs only 381 lbs. but sports 128 square feet of sail area for an often exciting ride. This boat is sailed across the US and the world with active fleets in Europe, South America, and Asia. There have been more than 30,000 built.
The official sailing season kicks off at the end of March, with sailing events every Saturday and Sunday thru the end October. Monthly social events are held throughout the year.
The fleet hosts sailing clinics and other fun events at different times of the year. Come join us to learn about sailing, rigging your boat, and racing. Snipe sailing rally days take place in the spring and the fall. The Marshmallow Intergalactic Championship is held each July. For 2023 we are adding a new event in August, a very silly event called Knot the Don Q Rum Championship. See the club calendar for dates and times of these events.
Snipe Fleet 330 and the Atlanta Yacht Club host the AYC Open Regatta each April, and the Halloween Regatta each October. Come join us!
