The Sabre Association of Victoria will be running the annual coaching weekend on the 12th and 13th of October 2013 at Black Rock Yacht Club. VIC Sabre AGM Sunday 13th from 9:45am.

There will be on water sessions on both days and some shore based activities depending on the weather.  There are usually over 30 boats so it’s a good crowd and a chance to get to know a lot of Sabre people from around Victoria.  The coaching has always been of a very high standard and you can expect this year to be the same with various State and National Champions in the team. Training Program will be posted before the end of the week.

Victorian Sabre Winter Series 2013



Please refer to the attached calendar showing the dates for all races in our annual Sabre winter series.

The winter series rambles it’s way through 15 races over 5 months, and involves both bay sailing at Black Rock and Mordialloc at the start and finish, and lake sailing at Albert Park Lake and Sugarloaf in the middle. Almost no-one sails all of the races, but that didn’t stop a whopping 50 boats from entering at least one of the races last season (that’s more than we get in the state championships !) The winter series is a great opportunity to race against boats that you’re not used to, to keep your skills and fitness up during the winter, and to engage in some good tactical racing so typical of lake sailing.

There is no entry fee to enter the series, although individual clubs do charge race entry fees for visitors.
