Proud to receive such nice comments from our clients:
“By the way, at the Pan-Am Games, the new DB Snipes were 1,2,3, with my 1998 Persson 4th (Colombians sailing it). At the North American Champs, the new DB boats were 1,2,4, with me in my 1998 Persson third.
Luis Subie’s comment about the new boats was short and succinct, “They are much stiffer.”
Augie (Diaz) and Ernesto (Rodriguez) just describe it this way, “They are faster.”
