Snipe Mainsails

Snipe Mainsail P-4

The P-4 B is crafted to be the ultimate power sail and helped win the 2019 World Championships. Designed with a fuller middle section, heavier crews have the extra power needed to lead the fleet. Constructed of durable Dimension-Polyant cloth and designed with attention to detail in the head, middle, and lower sections, this rugged sail holds shape to deliver power.

INCLUDES: Battens, vision windows, roll bag, royalties, telltales, and tackline.

Snipe Mainsail C-5

The C-5 B is our most popular mainsail. With small rig adjustments, the sail has a good balance of power through the wind range. It can be powered up for heavier teams or depowered for lighter teams. This versatile sail is built with premium Dimension Polyant fabric and designed with attention to the middle and lower sections for sail shape retention.

INCLUDES: Battens, vision windows, roll bag, royalties, telltales, and tackline.

Snipe Mainsail X-1

Ideally suited for normal-to-lighter weight Snipe teams, the new X-1 Radial offers a versatile, flatter, and smoother design that delivers results on the racecourse. The flatter shape makes the sail more responsive to input from the aft puller and outhaul. In medium-to-strong breeze, the sail flattens out and twists more easily, helping lighter teams outperform for their weight class. The X-1 is constructed of premium Dimension-Polyant cloth for durability and sail shape retention.

INCLUDES: Battens, vision windows, roll bag, royalties, telltales, and tackline.

Snipe Headsails

Snipe Jib RSJ-8B

This versatile all-around jib can be set up for every condition. With the rake and lead forward, the sail can be made full for light air. In breeze, with the rake and lead aft, the sail gets flatter and twisty in the top. This is a forgiving sail that is easy to drive through a wide steering groove and performs well all around. It is the one jib that does it all.

INCLUDES: Vision windows, roll bag, royalties, and telltales.

Snipe Jib RSJ-10

This jib was designed to be a slightly flatter sail for medium air. With reduced luff curve and flatter sections, the RSJ-10 points a touch higher overall. Constructed of durable Dimension-Polyant  cloth, the attention to detail and design translates to the right sail for the right conditions and setup.

INCLUDES: Vision windows, roll bag, royalties, and telltales.

George Szabo

George grew up in San Diego racing Stars, Lasers and Snipes. As a kid, he made sails for his model boats before eventually taking a part-time job with Quantum during high school and college. He came on full-time in 1993 as a sailmaker and designer.

Using the latest computer design programs, George is able to create the fastest, most efficient sails for smaller One Design boats. This technology, combined with his intimate understanding of One Design sailing, allows him to create the most versatile sails available. The San Diego loft designs a variety of One Design sails, including Thistle and Lido 14, but their specialties are Olympic Class Star and Snipe boats.

George is the 2009 Star World Champion, as well as an 21-time National/North American Champion. In addition to his sail-making abilities and wins, he is also an accomplished keelboat tactician and trimmer.

Carter Cameron

Growing up in Charleston, South Carolina, Carter fell in love with sailboat racing at a young age. He sailed Optis and Club 420s but his favorite racing boat was the Lightning. He sailed for the College of Charleston where he was coached by legendary sailmaker Greg Fisher. Carter was a skipper and starting heavy crew at Charleston and was nominated for the Robert H. Hobbs Sportsman of the Year in 2019 for college sailing. It was during his time at the College of Charleston that Carter realized his passion for the art of sailmaking and the science behind sail design.

Carter graduated in 2019 and moved to Annapolis to work with Quantum Sails as a service sailmaker. He quickly integrated himself into the Mid-Atlantic one-design sailing scene, excelling in the Snipe and Lightning classes. Carter also has experience with Viper 640s, E Scows, and high school and collegiate dinghies.

After spending 2 years at the loft in Annapolis, Carter moved to Quantum Sails San Diego to be a One Design Sailmaker under Mark Reynolds and George Szabo. In San Diego, Carter focuses on the production, R&D, and sales of One Design Sails with the goal of providing the best sails to our clients.

Carter enjoys giving back to the sport. He's a member of the Under 30 Committee for the U.S. Snipe Class, and enjoys coaching clinics, running regattas, and leading webinars. Carter is ready to help you maximize your potential in One Design sailing and any of your sailing needs.
