A big thank you to all the Sabre sailors that competed in the event. We hope you enjoyed the experience.
Sabres WA would also like to thank all the volunteers who helped with this regatta. Regattas like these take a large number of volunteers to ensure a successful event and all our volunteers worked very hard and dedicated their time to the event. We had a number of volunteers from the Sabre WA Community, Perth Dinghy Sailing Club and also from other WA yacht clubs and we thank you all for your time, efforts and professionalism.
