Dear Finnish Snipe-sailors

Scira Belgium is proud to announce it has been asked to organize the Snipe Women’s European championship 2019. The event hasn’t been run for a number of years and it was therefore the plan of the people who came up with the idea to make it a low threshold event. A 3 day regatta is planned from 28 to 30 June 2019.

The venue will be lake Galgenweel in the city of Antwerp, home of the Snipe in Belgium. Although small, less than 1 km long, it sports five sailing clubs and houses several hundred boats in covered yards. It’s one of the most active sailing hubs in Belgium from its creation as part of an urbanization plan in the 1940’s.
The size of the lake is a challenge, both for organizers as for sailors. Courses are short and guarantee close racing that is easy to follow from the clubhouse. The start line is max. 5 minutes away from the bank and crews can come ashore in between races as there are plenty of jetties. Scira Belgium is also known for its socials.

More practical information about the championship is coming soon. There will be charterboats available for sailors who prefer to come by plane. If necessary we will help you with housing.

We would like to invite the national secretaries to ask around in their countries and inform female sailors about this event.
Do you think about participating? Please let us know if you will be there by leaving your name in the doodle on our website ( or by sending me an e-mail ( so we can keep you posted about the event.

We would love to have some teams representing Finland! Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Kind regards from Belgium,
