History of the Snipe

Posted: 13/4/2021

    Member and yachting journalist Betty Armstrong is researching Snipe dinghies in N. Ireland and in particular a boat builder in or around Strangford Lough who is said to have built some, probably in the 1930s. If anyone knows of that person could they email Betty.

    Another shipwright who is also said to have built Snipes was supposedly located in East Belfast.
