The VYC yardstick is 126.5 (down from 128 a few years ago).

Hi all,
Have the sabre got that quick, or are all the other boats going slower. :lol:
Good sailing to all,

While the VYA yardstick is 126.5, the South Australian yardstick was 140 with the Laser Radial equal in both.

Having kept statistics from several championships with top skippers sailing I estimate the most appropriate yardstick would be 132-133. Over the whole wind range from 3 knots to 25 knots the Sabre only sails to its yardstick above 15 knots. The evidence is that in the low windspeeds the Sabre sails 7-8% slower than its yardstick when compared with other single handers such as the Laser Radial and Spiral.
