Once upon a time, Pandabonium sailed a Snipe - in Marina del Rey and Santa Barbara Harbor. Mostly solo (with a 50 lb lead weight for a little ballast) but sometimes with a companion. It was a nice boat that was built by Schock. There was some discussion at the time about the fiberglass Snipes, like mine, being slower than their wood counterparts due to the flexibility of the glass hull, but it mattered not to me as I never raced. (Never have understood the racing mindset, quite frankly. I think sport competition in general is a vestige of early human evolution. When you sail, just sail. Have fun.)
Here's a video of some serious sailing of Snipes and 470's by students of the Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology. They obviously didn't get my Buddhist memo, but nonetheless appear to be having fun.
Considering the world they will face upon graduation, I hope they have all the fun they can, while they can.
Until next, sweet sailing.
