The object of the Association and this Website is to provide an opportunity to exchange ideas and stimulate discussion about owning and sailing boats from the Snapdragon, Mirage and Invader classes. We also aim to provide assistance to others of the SMIA fraternity through the discussion forum and via our Facebook Page

The Association is open to all owners, past and present, of yachts which were built by Thames Marine Ltd., at Canvey Island. Further details about the Association can be found under the “Association” button above. Members have access to the “Members pages” where you can find out about Association’s activities as well as more technical info about the boats. Members also receive a twice yearly Journal.

If you have any interesting Snapdragon stories, experiences or handy tips to add to this site you can either add an item to the forum or click here to e-mail the siteminder. (E-mail should open in a separate window) Articles sent for the website may also be included in our biannual journal which is posted out to members.  

If you are looking for a crew or would like to sail on a SMIA boat then there is a Crew & Skipper section on the forum where you can post your information.
