Well its about to get underway, the Summer Season is about to kick off here in WA and we have a busy calendar organised.

Click here for a flyer outlining key dates for the 2015/2016 Season.

Dates start this weekend with East Fremantle's Opening Day on this Sunday, along with TCYC's Opening Day. All Sabre Sailors are welcome to attend and have a sail. Let's try and support our Sabre Clubs Opening Days as much as we can by getting as many Sabres to attend.

More information in relation to other events will be provided closer to the events.

Safety Bay Yacht Club are starting a fleet of Sabres this season.

Safety Bay Yacht Club is a family focused club that has been operating in Safety Bay since 1947. SBYC is located just south of Rockingham and approx 55km south of the Perth CBD. SBYC is an off the beach dinghy sailing club with fleets of Windrush, Lasers, Mirrors, Sabres and O'Pen Bics. SBYC is also a registered Discover Sailing Centre

Membership is $100 per person or $140 per family. Most of the sailing is conducted on Sunday Afternoons so if you sail on Saturdays at your current club, you can join in at Safety Bay on a Sunday. Contact Craig Nylund 0417 172 453 craig@polypipetraders.com.au  or SBYC Commodore Anthony Saw anth_saw@hotmail.com for more information.




For the first time in living memory (I kid you not, well almost), winter dinghy racing at EFYC on Sunday 5 July was ABANDONED. I'd never actually seen the flag which signified that there would be no racing, I had to ask someone what it was. 9 Sabres sailors were disappointed. Kelly Miragliotta proudly displayed and used the paddle which came with her Sabre from Victoria (it was a rule that each boat had a paddle there).

We will try to reschedule Races 5 and 6 at EFYC possibly on Sunday 19 July, subject to a favourable weather forecast. I'll confirm this later.

4 - 6 Sabres are sailing regularly on Wednesday afternoons and any Sabre sailor who can escape work is welcome to join us.

There have been some changes of ownership of Sabres at EFYC. Bruce Moorman has bought Stiletto from Peter Johnston, who has bought On Fire from Pete Coop. Pete is now sailing his new new boat 2057 Back in Black.. Jim Gregson has bought 1943 a Formula Sailcraft from TCYC, which was originally owned by EFYC sailor Mike Keep. Steve Walters has sold A Salt Weapon to PDSC, where he is now crewing on an Int 14. We welcome Paul Burwood who has bought Dave Kenny's Red Tip "Lite Sabre".

The Association Sabre "Tiwi" is available for any one who wants to try out sailing a Sabre. Its currently housed at EFYC, and we can make it available on Wednesdays or at the weekend. Contact Peter Johnston on 0431 039 909 or johnst@iinet.net.au. It can also be made available to other Clubs which would like to access it.
