We ensure continuation of the SABRE as a One-Design class by

1. Constant review of construction materials, building procedures and fittings.

2. Active promotion, by displaying and demonstrating the SABRE at Boat Shows.

We provide assistance in construction, through provision of Association building templates.

We conduct Association meetings where ideas are exchanged, and guest speakers talk on subjects relating to the class and sailing.

We conduct a sailing program enabling new sailors to obtain expert advice and assistance from experienced SABRE Coaches.

Regular Clinics and a Short Course Teams racing sharpen handling skills for National and State Championships.

We conduct Association races for those skippers interested in top class competition. E.g. State and National Titles, Association Trophy days and Inter-club Team Races.

The Association actively encourages Youth sailing Training and participation in V.Y.C. Youth events. SABRE is a recognised Youth Training Class.

We provide assistance to Clubs interested in promoting the class within the Club.

We publish a Association newsletter called the 'SABRE RATTLE' to keep members informed, pass on helpful hints, and provide details of races, meetings etc.

We assist members in the purchase and sale of boats by maintaining lists of boats for sale and advertising them in the 'SABRE RATTLE' or on the web site.
