    This weekend we have had a great privilege to host Mr. Antonio Bari, SCIRA Rules Committee Chairman and learn all about Snipe Class Rules and Measurements from the best teacher possible. He had also shared some rather useful tips&tricks with us regarding boat setup and tuning. We will definitely take his advice considering his 40-year long experience in Class! Big thanks!

    Chief Measurer: Luis Gonzalez Alvarez

    Industrial engineer

    Born in Cádiz (Spain), on November 19, 1968,

    I am responsible for the facilities and maintenance of  Hospital "Universitario Puerta del Mar" in Cadiz.

    I have begun my career as measurer in 1991, with Manolo Bernal (famous Snipe sailor), in the Raceboard European Championship.

    After that I attended the Olympic Classes Championship the same year.

    ...

     

    In 1992 I served at the Olympic Class World Championships (Mundo Vela'92) and appointed as National Measurer for the Tornado Class.

    After the end of Mundo Vela'92, I was invited to attend the Olympics Games in Barcelona'92 as a measurer with Niki Nocke.

    After some years far from sailing, when back in 2000 I was appointed as National Measurer of the Europe Class, then International Measurer in 2003, serving all National, European and International Championships.

    Since then, I have measured in national and international championships of Finn, Optimist, Patin, One meter, Snipe ...

    Within the Snipe class I assisted Pepe Perez in many Championships including the 2016 Europeans and 2017 Worlds in Spain.

    I was then asked to replace Antonio Espada as Chief Measurer of the Snipe Class, position that I will be honoured to hold beginning 2018.
