The weekend of March 3rd-4th saw a great turn out of 11 female Sabre sailors at the Women On Water event hosted by Sorrento Sailing Couta Boat Club (SSCBC). In their typical committed fashion the ‘Sabrettes’ keenly attended the training event focused on delivering quality coaching, skills and confidence building, and guaranteed fun for all levels of femal sailors!

SSCBC secured a top line up of experienced and encouraging female coaches and race management, ensuring the event ran smoothly and participants were able to take home some great key learnings.

The weekend proved to be a mix of conditions with some excitement, two up boat sailing and wayward boat retrieving on the Saturday afternoon after a high wind front passed through. One ‘Sabrette’ positively posting her weekend learning on Facebook as,“I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning to sail my ship”(Louise Alcott).

Competition was not amiss amongst the friendly natured Sabrettes with the race series top positions going to:

1st Lisa Barrand

2nd Fiona McCulloch

3rd Wendy Wilson

Thanks to SSCBC for a great weekend and all the coaches for sharing their valuable insight and endless encouragement! We look forward to next year.
