DB MARINE developped the idea of a ”DB Sailing Academy” with the objective to make the Italian Snipe Class grow again.
The DB Sailing Academy’ goal is to support the improvement of the Snipe Class in Italy both in terms of number of active boats as well as in terms of level of skill and performance of single crews aiming to continue the tradition of competitivity of the Italian Class also in International events.
Our offer is directed to all experienced, less experienced or beginners crews coming from all the Italian territory. However any crew coming from abroad is highly welcomed. The more we are the better!
See our brochure for more informations.
DB SAILING ACADEMY ENGLISH VERSION
Ernesto Rodríguez and Kathleen Tocke powered by DB-R1 are the 2018 Western Hemisphere & Orient Champions. The Championship was held in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The two Champions won after 10 races even if they had a difficult start since they couldn’ t race the first two races due to some healthy problem.
The brazilian team with Juliana Duque and Rafael Martins placed second and third came the argentine Lucho Pesci and Barbara Brotons.
