The rule is simple - only allowed one sail - but in case of damage with permission may change the sail.

One sail per regatta

I am fairly sure that there is not a Sabre Class rule that only one sail or set of foils can be used in a regatta.

It is has been practice for as long as I can remember that the Notice of Race for each Nationals and Vic Titles has included a specific clause resticting to one sail/foils unless, as Stephen says, written permission is obtained from the race committee in exceptional circumstances.

I believe this is a throw back to the early days of the Sabre with the objective of minimising cost.

It is probably obsolete now given that virtually every competitor at titles these days has 2 or more sails...perhaps the committees running the various state and national titles should reconsider whether these retrictions are still necessary in the future.
It certainly has done nothing to prevent people buying multiple sails.
