The John Seeber Memorial Sabre Teams Race was successfully conducted at Mordialloc on Saturday 7th April with 16 boats divided into 4 mixed teams of (hopefully) equal skills. The weather was light with a 3-5 knot southerly veering to a south easterly that eventually faded to near nothing by the end of the race.

Number 1 and 2 members of each team sailed a slightly longer course on the first lap. This gave the number 3 and 4 team members the experience of being at the sharp end of the fleet whilst giving the more experienced sailors the taste of being in the latter half of the fleet for at least some part of the race.

The fleet was  well bunched up at the end of the first race providing a good result for this type of format.It's a format that would work at club races as it encourages Sabre members in the second half of the fleet to gain experience and continue to turn up each week.

There was only 4 points between 1st and 3rd teams that showed that the team selection process does work.

Well, we may have discovered the best sailing venue in Australia at Lake Wallagoot. Midway between Bega and Merimbula on the NSW South Coast this pristine lake lies within the Bournda National Park. There is a local fleet of upto 11 boats and 9 travelled from Newcastle, Sydney and the ACT on the weekend of the 10/11 March. This is actually a return to the past when titles were held on different weekends and we found a fabulous group of very well organised people with a love for sailing and the beautiful surrounds in which they sail.
