News Update


snipe red  The Snipes are back !

Opening day was here, and Toper our second oldest Snipe was on display to represent the fleet. If you didn’t have the chance to stop by, check out the photos on our new Facebook page.
Our new web-page is now online and you can find it on at the link below, or on the fleet link posted on the SCCYC web page, as well as on the SCIRA USA page for District 6.

The class flags are here, ready for the first racing season of our fleet. This is what you will watching for on the committee boat.

On a more official business note, SCIRA dues are due and can now be paid on-line through the SCIRA USA web-page, make sure you check District 6 and Fleet 24 Santa Monica Bay. It is important to contribute so we have access to SCIRA’s vital infrastructure and network. We will only maintain active fleet status if we have registered members and keep growing our fleet membership.

SCIRA’s US Snipe sailor magazine has published our story in the latest issue. You can download the full pdf version at the ink below.
