Sabres on Pittwater, Northern Sydney

Sabre sailing has started on Pittwater in Northern Sydney.

Sabres are racing at Bayview Yacht Racing Association on Sunday afternoons. Several Sabre sailors enjoyed racing at various times during the 2013-14 season. A 2014 winter frostbite season started on 25 May, with 4 Sabres having a great day. We were the best represented class on the day. The winter races are held on the last Sunday of each month, in the morning. The next summer season starts on 14 September 2014.

Pittwater is perfect for Sabre sailing. Good sea breezes, flat ocean water and wide, open race tracks make for great racing. Sabres are now a fixture at Bayview. Twice we have had 4 Sabres racing, together with Spirals. Roger Freney races regularly Sunday afternoons and Sue Hextell also raced in early April and in the winter series. Another enthusiast, Mal Keeler, bought a Sabre from Victoria in May 2014 and has started sailing at Bayview. Didi Fitzgerald also enjoyed the superb conditions in Winter Race 1 and claimed two third placings.

Several Sabre sailors who live on Sydney's northside will sail at Bayview on Sundays in the 2014-15 season. Sue, Mal and Roger, at least, will use this as part of their training campaign for the National Championships in Adelaide from 28 December 2014.

Bayview (BYRA) welcomes all Sabre sailors to its club racing. The facilities are lovely and the race management is professional.
