Our local ASC Sabre Sailor Ben Knoop, has just won the 2016 Victorian Sabre State Championships in a 79 boat fleet at Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron.
Sailed over the weekend 27th & 28th February at the newly renovated Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron, Ben sailed a very consistent regatta to win by 6 points.
His places were 1, 1, (11 discarded), 4 and 2 in a 5 race series.
Ben also won the Senior Division for age group 19-39 years and also won the 1st Wooden Boat overall.
The fleet also included a boat from WA and Qld.
A Fantastic effort by Ben!!
