The growing popularity of the Marshall Sandpiper as a racing class brought about the founding of the Sandpiper Class Association. The association’s mission is to promote the Sandpiper class, develop Sandpiper racing, encourage and foster the sport of sailing and do anything else it can to support Sandpiper sailors and enthusiasts. The Sandpiper has been a one-design class member of US Sailing since December 2012.
By becoming a member of the Sandpiper class you enable the Class Association to promote the Sandpiper class, develop and maintain the class website, organize class rendezvous, promote and support Regional and National Championship regattas and help maintain the Sandpiper as a strict one-design class of sailboat.
The 2017 Sandpiper National Championship will take place September 21-23rd, 2017 and will be hosted by the Duxbury Yacht Club in Duxbury, MA. More information on the event itself will be posted on this site when available.
