Looks like a busy and enjoyable season coming up! More information will follow as we get closer to the start of the season.

Club racing is the backbone of our season and for this reason we endeavour to restrict the Sabre regatta schedule. However regatta racing is our opportunity to learn, often with coaching, and string together a series. We recommend that you support regattas at other clubs – and they will support yours.

 

Coaching days 

Sabre fleets in Vic clubs hold individual coaching days. Dates to be advised.

As the base part of the tree, it wasn’t considered a prime section to mill, or may have had some rot in the central part, thus was left behind on the forest floor for around 100 years, until 3 months ago, when it was found & salvaged.For some context, this tree started its life around 238 AD and was growing along with the Roman Empire in the period of the kings, it was still standing as the Roman Empire fell. The pine had grown tall when Abel Tasman mapped Tasmania in the 1640s, and lived to see the beginning of Australian colonialism until the arrival of the convicts.Who wants one? ... See MoreSee Less
