The 2014/2015 Sabre National Championships will be held at Adelaide Sailing Club. READ MORE


There appears to be a degree of misunderstanding regarding the 40 amendments to rules that came into effect in Feb 2014.
This in part seems to stem from comments at the Perth AGM and from various website forum posts.
 
The facts are that a properly constituted Special General Meeting of SSAA held 30 Nov 2013 and conducted by post, carried  motions to amend the rules of the Sabre Dinghy.
Although passed, the amendments consciously did not come into effect until 1 Feb 2014 and in two cases, 15 Feb 2014.
A note was put on the website before the WA Nationals to this effect which also seems to have been missed or ignored.
 
Stocks of the Building Notes, Fit-out Guide and Rules manual that were printed in Aug 2011 still exist. This manual plus a printout of the 40 rule amendments have been issued to every new build applicant this calendar year.  The amendments will be incorporated in the next re-print of the manual.
As an aside, 31 sail numbers have been issued this year, of which 18 (58%) are for self-built timber boats, the majority of which are in Hobart.

Barry Eastgate
Secretary SSAA

To
Secretaries and Presidents of State Sabre Associations of NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC, WA
SSAA Committee of Management.

A Special General Meeting is called to vote on a proposal to change the Rules of Measurement of the Sabre Dinghy; please refer to the attached Notice of the SGM which contains the proposal and to the attached voting form.

Background is included in the preamble to the Notice in the attachment.
State associations should consider the proposal and advise their two delegates on how their State wishes to vote.

The SGM will be conducted by email or mail (preference being email).
I suggest that State Secretaries scan both delegate voting forms and return to me by email; preferably before the designated time and date of the SGM.

Kind regards
Barry Eastgate
Secretary, SSAA
