The Sabres return to Black Rock in just over a year as Victoria takes its turn to host the nationals. The event will run from 28 December 2016 through to 3 January 2017.
Black Rock has an enviable record of hosting big national and world championships and it will be great to see the championships at Victoria’s largest Sabre club. The Vic committee is looking for at least a 100 boat fleet to continue the tradition of large nationals which saw 130 entries 4 years ago at Blairgowrie.
Melbourne with its landmarks and fabulous food, cultural, and sporting attractions is is a wonderful place to visit in the summer time, and the organisers will be putting on a great social program during the series to provide as big a buzz off the water for competitors as they will get on the water.

The next big event is the annual Teams Racing at Mordialloc SC on 21th March 2015. This is the event where everyone and anyone can win. Everyone taking part will be part of a team of 4 with an experienced team captain. The teams will be as evenly matched as we can make them so that every team has a chance of winning. Its been a great event in the past with a lot of people taking part. This year we are introducing a coaching element so that sailors who tend to be at the back of the fleet get some help from those at the front so we are scheduling an earlier start.
