We had 9 Sabres and 1 Laser participating in 2 races on Sunday 6th March 2016.

5 PDSC boats, 3 MYC and 1 from EFYC. (See Pic). Winds were light easterlies but racing was very close.
Overall Results:

1. Ray Martin 1792 Jam Side Down
2. Clayton Erwin 1936 Unfinished Business

All place getters were from PDSC. Well done all sailors, a relaxing day on the Maylands waterway had by all with a few frothies to socialise afterwards courtesy of the Maylands sailors.

Maylands now has a Class of Sabres. We formed an official fleet of 5 boats when trainee Raj purchased Tiwi this week. We will sail out the rest of the season in the Mixed Fleet and look forward to 2016/2017 and more Sabres joining us. Pictured are 4 of our boats -missing is Steve Rose in Tango, away FIFO working.

We have cornered the market in Botterill hulls - 3 of our 5 boats are Botterills.

The WA Sabre Association had its Annual General Meeting on Tuesday evening and there were some changes to the WA Committee. I would like to thank outgoing committee members Pete and Charlotte Coop for their efforts over the last 2 years and wish them well in their busy business life. Also thank you to Clayton Erwin who can now devote more time on his flag officer duties at PDSC.

I look forward to doing the best I can in my position as President.

The WA Committee is currently as follows.

Brian Jones - President
Ian James - Vice President
Jenny Jones - Secretary
Mike Dean - Treasurer
Chelsea Baker - Marketing & Publicity
Rob Depiazzi - Measurer

The new committee is eager and keen to get to work. We welcome your feedback, so please don't hesitate to contact us. Full contact details for the committee can be found here 

It is great to see the number of clubs sailing Sabres in WA. These being Maylands Yacht Club, Safety Bay Yacht Club, Walpole Yacht Club, Royal Perth Yacht Club, East Fremantle Yacht Club and Perth Dinghy Sailing Club. So please enjoy the little boat and let's have fun and success on the water.
