As you would have seen on the website earlier, Sabres have begun sailing in Western Australia with numbers dramatically increasing over the past year.

The Association is now registered as well as being affiliated with Yachting Western Australia and very soon we should be affiliated with the Australian Sabre Association.

We are currently sailing from the Perth Dinghy Sailing Club located at Matilda Bay on the Swan River.

We held our inaugural AGM Saturday 29 th August and combined the meeting with a welcomed visit from Phil Johnson (the National Measurer). We had an excellent roll up of Sabre skippers, who found Phil's visit very informative on all aspects of the Sabre. Phil trained our WA State Measurer Robert Depiazzi on how to correctly measurer our boats as well speaking at the AGM. We would like to thank Phil for making the trip over and thanks also to Mike Simpson for helping arrange the visit.

We currently have 13 boats with 11 skippers, with interest growing continually. Boat construction over the winter months has been intense. 7 Boats have been constructed.

At the start of the season in October we should have 10 boats definitely starting, with the other boats joining the fleet as they complete construction. To publicise the Sabres over here even further, we are going to visit other yacht clubs opening days, envisaging that they might start up their own fleets.
