The summer sailing season is now over and many hardy Sabre sailors are competing in winter series races – in preparation for the 2018/19 season. A major highlight will be the National Championships to be held at the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron in January 2019. This was the venue for the very successful 2012 series. RQYS is a great location and venue in the suburb of Manly.
