The Sabot is a 2.4 metre (eight foot) cat rigged dinghy sailed throughout
Australia. It is the most popular kids training boat in this country. More than
200 Sabots competed in the last Australian Championships.

The Sabot is a National Class. Each season the Sabot Association
organises local, zone, state and national championships, all of which have a
long tradition and great prestige is associated with the winner.
The boats are built using the highest grades of fiberglass and resins available. The construction is foam sandwich using vacuum bagging techniques to ensure lightweight and strong boats.
The boats are generally in stock or can be ordered in specific colours from bare hull to sail away.

mouldings are the result of 2 years of development work and attention to
