The Naples Sabot is an 8 foot, 1 person, one-design sailboat that has been the sailing trainer of choice in Southern California for nearly 60 years. During that time, the Naples Sabot has created some of the finest and most talented sailors in our sport.
The origin of the Briny Bunch: a social and sailing non-profit society using the Sabot sailboat in competition, bay and luncheon cruising, racing seminars and workshops and as an excuse for compatible sailors to get together to laugh, cry and commiserate.
The Briny Bunch started in 1995. A friendship of mutual interests and outlook expanded into forming a delightful larger Briny Bunch and regular weekly and bi-weekly practice racing sessions along with semi-mandatory cocktail hours. Membership is mostly a matter of having a sabot, enjoying watching or helping with sabot races, and the ability to be beaten in races.
Alamitos Bay Yacht Club has a Senior Sabot Fleet known as the "Sabotiers". The Sabotiers have monthly "Sabot Sunday" fleet races followed by an informal fleet meeting with a happy hour, trophy presentation and dinner.
In June, July and August the fleet has Twilight races on Thursday evenings. Please contact the fleet captain for additional information.
