95 entries and a very well run series by Mordialloc SC in extremely trying conditions in which all races counted concluded 27 Feb .

Gary McLennan, multi Sharpie National champ from BRYC and after only one year in the Sabre, won narrowly from perennial champions Wayne Bates and Callum Burns. Although winning two races, current Australian champ, Chris Dance finished 4th due to having to carry a bad, for him, 18th in the first race.

It was great to see the quality of the Youth ranks with Jack Felsental and James McLennan, 2 members of the Australian Optimist team that competed in the Malaysian worlds finishing 1st and 2nd from Murphy McColl from Gippsland Lakes. Current Laser 4.7 State champ, Lachlan Imeneo finished 4th in the Youth div.

A number of 'new' Sabre sailors who haven't sailed for many years returned to sailing this series and achieved fantasic results...in particular Tim Van Der Veen (6th overall) and Colin White (12th overall) who borrowed brother Peter's boat. We even enticed renowned Mordialloc / Sorrento identity, Nigel Abbott to borrow a boat for the last day and not surprisingly, after a practice in the first race of the day, cracked a 4th...see you at Blairgowrie next Xmas Nigel.
