Sabre's Update

Wednesday, June 16, 2021

5 Sabres travelled to Geraldton over the June long weekend & were joined by another from Safety Bay Yacht Club.

Two races were sailed on the Saturday in light conditions, while a further 4 were sailed on Sunday, when conditions improved considerably, to provide an excellent series.

Race organisation & course setting was impeccable, while onshore arrangements were top class & we were welcomed warmly.

Paul Giodesco from Safety Bay won comfortably, showing that his 2 years away from sailing have not affected his ability, Simon Walker placed second, with Mark Kiernander in third place.

Sabres training program at EFYC is now in full swing, with 5 trainees venturing out last Saturday. We now have around 10 interested in sailing Sabres and the fleet owned boats are getting plenty of use, augmented by members own boats.

Thanks to Peter Johnston for the story.
