Wow, I bet you will be hard to beat with those #'s. That is about 10 points behind a laser and I doubt the boat is that much slower.


Definately slower than a Laser. There are plenty of Sabres & 420s racing in Oz, so the Oz figures should be a good guide.



I, as a very very very average Laser Radial sailor could keep ahead of a very very very good Sabre sailor at our local club events, so agree Sabre is definitely slower. As said, Australian VYC (or YV) Yardstick rating differentials for Laser and Sabre would be very good basis

Three weeks of very part time work, a hour or two a day, decks on and getting close to finshed. Easy build gret plans, can't wait to get it in the water

You've gotten a lot done in a short time. It's looking good.

Ended up building 3 boats at 4 weeks for each.

 

Our club has gone from 0 Sabre’s a year ago to 29 today and still growing… fast.

 

It has show to be the boat that everyone was looking for, as we can't get enough to satisfy all those that want them.

Great to see all the Sabre action.
Unfinished business in this class for me.

Will spend some time in the shed again one day and make a go of it...!
