The Organizing Committee, Officers, and Executive Board of the Jubilee Yacht Club are thrilled to announce that North Sails will be the title sponsor for our upcoming Snipe North American Championship which will be held in Beverly, MA on September 11-13, 2020. The regatta will be another opportunity for North Sails and the Snipe class to demonstrate the Snipe class motto "Serious Sailing, Serious Fun".

With the addition of North Sails, the foundation is in place for a world class event. Jeff Earl, Commodore of the Jubilee Yacht Club stated, "Our club is excited to welcome back the Snipe Fleet for their 2020 North American Championship. The class represents a fantastic group of sailors from top to bottom, and our membership enjoys meeting the diverse group of teams both on and off the water. The Jubilee Yacht Club has a rich history of sailing since being founded in 1896, and it is a privilege to share our beautiful venue for this regatta."

Tim Healy, North Sails One Design President, commented, "North Sails is proud to support the stalwart Snipe class that continues to thrive after so many years. We're excited to partner with the Jubilee Yacht Club in its support of one design racing."

Beverly is located 20 miles northeast of Boston, adjacent to the historic witches of Salem and fishermen of Gloucester. Wind will be from east to southeast at 6-10 knots. Sea breezes and tricky tidal currents are sure to challenge all competitors. This event will attract some of the best sailors in the class representing all parts of the United States and beyond.
