Sabots Find a Home

The PHBC sends a big shout-out to the Yarra Bay Sailing Club in La Perouse for their very kind donation of five fully rigged Sabot sailing dinghies to add to our growing fleet of sailing and rowing classics.

We aim to use these dinghies to teach our participants how to sail... and what an excellent little boat to start in! Designed in 1939, these boats have been the nursery for countless world-class sailors, and continue as one of the world's largest and best known dinghy fleets. Let's hope PHBC sail training can kick-start a few of our program participants into the character-building world of wind and water.
