Sabre 386, 'Jalapeño'
by Greg Gibson
Jalapeño in Ensenada
38.6 ft, Bermuda/Masthead Sloop
Full batten main, two reef points
Medium displacement, performance cruiser
She's a beauty and sails like a dream, no longer produced by Sabre. Actually, Sabre now only produces motor yachts. It's a shame because they produced fantastic sailboats. The sales literature says she sleeps 7, Ha! My wife and I have come to the conclusion that two is max, unless in a slip and then maybe only three.
She hasn't been too far. For the first two years of life she lived in Ensenada, Baja California. It's a wonderful place but when all of the drug cartel stuff got nasty, it was too much hassle to get down to sail her. She now resides in San Diego, much closer to our Tucson home.
We've had her out in force 7 winds, 20ft swells with a reefed main and partially furled genoa and she handled it well.
