oldest Sabre on recorld

Hi guys,
Just wondering what the oldest Sabre in the association is. My husband and I have just bought and restored a sabre built in 1975 sail number 39. I was wondering if there are any older ones still alive.

I maintain the membership database and according to that you probably have the oldest boat.
Rex Fettell, designer of the Sabre still sails Abigail, Nbr 99 and until your restoration, it appeared to be the oldest boat still sailing.
It is possible that there are early boats still sailing that aren't on my records...you might want to contact Phil Johnson, National Measurer to see if he has manual records which may add to this info.

I think from memory the oldest one sailed in the winter series was number 31 Electra , sailed out of Albert Park Yacht club.

Not sure of additional details. A member from the club may know more.

It looked in pretty good conditions so either its been well stored over 30 + years or nicely restored.
