Snipe Fleet 309

Snipe Class Racing (INSA)

The Iowa Nebraska Sailing Association (INSA) also known as Snipe Fleet #309, is the association of sailors within LMSA that race One Design Snipe Class Sailboats.  There are approximately 20 to 25 Snipe Class boats within the fleet.  Our fleet #309 is a member of the Snipe Class International Racing Association (SCIRA) which has fleets and racing programs worldwide. See also the History page of this site.   The Snipes in our fleet race on Wednesday nights at 6:00 pm and Saturday afternoons at 1:30 pm with other boats from the Open Fleet.  The option exists for separate starts for the Snipes when 3 or more are racing.   A SCIRA regatta will be held at our club in September wherein Snipes from other fleets nationwide are invited to come and compete.  The Fleet has several Snipes for sale that would make it easy for new sailors to get involved in Snipe racing using one of these boats.  Dues for INSA are $40 for regular racing members, $25 for first year members and $15 for Social or Junior racing memberships.   These dues are in addition to the required LMSA membership fee.  Go to Join INSA to join “online”.   For answers to your questions, Contact Us
