The Sabre Regatta - August 6-7, 2005

ESMERALDE and her crew had great fun at the Sabre regatta in Marblehead, hosted by the Corinthian Yacht Club.  The Club was spectacular: members, officers, staff and race committee were terrific, and we thank them!  We had good fun catching up with Sabre staff on hand, and even recruited ace crewmember Amanda Montgomery to help ESMERALDE take third place in the Sabre World Cup on Sunday!  Some 40-45 Sabres and Sabrelines participated.  Below are a couple of photos of the wonderful weekend...
