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

We’re delighted to advise that the motion that was the subject of a Special General Meeting earlier in Oct to amend the method of conducting voting under our constitution was carried unanimously with all 6 member states in favour. (This vote required each of the states to give each of their members the opportunity to vote on the motion in order to determine how that state would vote on the SSAA SGM motion). What this does is to ensure alignment of the Constitution as lodged with Corporate Affairs Victoria (CAV) with the way that the SSAA has actually been undertaking voting in the past couple of decades.

As a result of the successful vote, the SSAA had lodged the resulting Association constitution and rules with CAV who have since responded with their approval. What this means is that our method of undertaking SSAA voting can now just involve getting our 6 member states to vote without them having to conduct their own vote of their members first.

The important next step however is a further SGM to ratify all previous SSAA motions and rule changes that have been voted on over the years. This includes for example the large vote in Nov13 involving 42 separate rule changes that was voted on using the ‘2 delegates per state’ format. This is basically a precautionary move to ensure that there are no grounds for challenging the validity of these past votes. The SSAA will be sending out details of this SGM and vote to State Associations later this week.

Once that is done - we’ll be in a position to turn again to the proposed ‘Charter’ document which was the subject of a vote that we needed to abandon back in August.

Last week, the office bearers of the SSAA got together for a meeting at which we invited well known Sabre builder Brett Young of YMS to present his views and ideas. Brett has been building Sabres for 27 years, and has a strong background in measurement rules and processes.
Many of you will be aware that Brett has been quite vocal over the past year in relation to his concerns regarding the Sabre measurement rules and the absence of a requirement that builders and moulds be licensed by the Association. We therefore felt that the best outcome was to invite Brett to a meeting where we could hear his input in detail and discuss the issues.
It was a good meeting with quite a lot of ground covered and it was good to see that we had consensus with many – indeed most of Brett’s ideas. Others will need more thought. Obviously any new proposals or rule changes will need to go to the state associations for voting. Click here for the minutes of the meeting & Brett’s material presented ahead of the meeting.

This is very important.  The Sabre Association Constitution has some problems and needs to be rectified urgently.  We need to have a quorum at the Annual General Meeting to pass a special resolution to put things right. For timing of the meeting see the next item 'Sabre Coaching BRYC'.
