The same reasons designer Rex Fettell had when he conceived the design.

A need for a single-handed dinghy that was light, of simple easy to build design, with good handling performance, even in 20 knots plus and lumpy seas, a comfortable cockpit and close class racing suitable for both male and female sailors who weigh between 50 to 90 kg.

Although the ideal weight is claimed to be 60 Kg - 80 Kg, winners have been at the extremes depending on conditions.

Females have won both the Australian and Victorian championships.

SABRE is a REAL boat, not a low profile surfboard type. Performance suits the average sailor rather than the super athletic skipper and at an affordable price.

SABRE fits neatly into the position between junior and family sailing dinghies, and the high performance but expensive international classes. Large fleets in so many clubs ensures excellent competition, a strong training base and protection of your investment.

SABRE is maintained as a strict one-design class by an Australian Association and supported by strong, active State Associations with sufficient flexibility to move with the times and technological development without detriment to earlier boats.

The boat is readily transported by car-topping or light trailer and is easily carried by two people. Many skippers have beach-trolleys for easy single-handed launching which also fit onto their trailers.
