Fleet Information

Snipe

  • The very first chartered Snipe fleet originated at White Rock Lake in 1934 and now Snipe Fleet 1 calls CSC home. The Snipe is a 15-1/2 ft. sloop weighing 381 pounds with serious "go-fast" controls which have attracted racing sailors world-wide. Very tight one-design class rules and superior construction requirements mean these boats remain very competitive for years. 

    Dallas Snipe Fleet 1 has loaner boats, boats for sale, and a lease-to-buy option.  We assist new members with rigging and tuning.  All levels of ability, from beginner to expert, are welcome at our "short course" practice races which are held year round. See our Snipe Fleet Meetup page for the latest schedule of fleet activities including the practice races. Contact Us if you want to join in the fun!
