A free coaching program has been organised by Black Rock Sailing club for all Sabres leading up to the States at Blairgowrie and the Nationals at Black Rock in 2016.  
Coaching will be for all ability levels.
The 2015 sessions were great with excellent coaching by top Sabre sailors.  2016 will be just as good.  Program is to be rigged and dressed ready to sail by 10am.  
Let Harold know at medd@tpg.com.au if you want to attend so that we can make sure we have the right number of coaches, coach boats etc.

Here is the link to the Notice of Race:
 
 
The 2017 Victorian state championships will be hosted by the Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron on the weekend of February 27 & 28. 

It’s been about 10 years since we were last at Blairgowrie for the states, and this year we will get to enjoy the club’s brand new clubhouse which opened just 2 months ago. The new clubhouse has a much larger deck, and has a full kitchen which sees meals be served to members and their guests 4 days a week. Coupled with the normally flat seas and the picturesque coastline that arcs from Sorrento to Arthurs Seat and beyond - its been a long time favourite visiting spot for the Sabres since the early days of the class. 

The racing will be our now familiar 2 day format with a race on Saturday morning, 2 on Saturday afternoon and 2 on the Sunday in the late morning. We will be putting on a catered bbq and buffet dinner on the Saturday night in the new clubhouse for everyone who’d like to unwind after the Saturday racing and to experience the new clubhouse. (You’ll need to book this at the time of entering the series)

Blairgowrie of course was the host of the most recent nationals where we had the amazing 130 entries - the biggest ever Sabre event. We’re hoping that this will be a really really big fleet as well - our target is at least 100 boats ! 

For many this will be your big sailing event for the season - so we look forward to getting your entries in ! (And one more thing - if you haven’t had any new foils or sails measured as yet - you need to do so before the championships !)
