  • Description: More than two decades ago, Andrew Pimental started Jibetech to build one design boats and parts. When national champion Ed Adams suggested the new company build an updated Snipe, Andrew agreed…and ever since then, Jibetech Snipes have been at the top of most US results. They also build other one designs and continue to build blades for other manufacturers. Jibetech has built more than 130 Snipes and is currently the only US builder. Innovations in rigging and cosmetics, such as an improved range in jiblead adjustment and a carbon fiber splash rail, have helped the Class transition into the 21st century. In 2008, the molds were again upgraded to maximize the width and depth of the chines. In addition to building Snipes, Andrew continues to race them. At the prize giving of the 2009 Nationals (where with crew Julia Marsh, he finished eighth), Andrew was presented with poster signed by competitors celebrating his 20th anniversary as a builder. “I look forward to this regatta every year,” he responded with his trademark grin. Even for those in the industry, the Snipe class continues to set the standard for Serious Sailing, Serious Fun®.
