Not sure about now , but in the past people of 13 or 14 have been known to sail sabres in competition.

It depends more on the weight and height of the person.

Generally the main criteria is weight , so if so one is young and around 50 to 55kg they would be fine.

In fact in light winds they may find themselves at an advantage. The reverse of course applys when the wind kicks in.

On the other hand with the introduction of a two handed sabre category , two light weight people can sail a sabre together.

This provides experience for light / young people , as well as allowing then to race solo once they have enough weight and confidence in the same boat.
