April 29th, 2023Shadey activity at Cairn Curran Sailing Club
Community Bank Maldon & District chairman Ross Eggleton visited the Cairn Curran Sailing Club on Saturday to meet members and see the club’s newly installed shade sail.
Club members had been hoping to provide much-needed shade on their deck for many years and were
delighted when Bendigo Bank provided a grant of $12,000 towards the $20,000 cost of installation and purchase.
Members were preparing to take part in the annual Serg Vescovi trophy on the misty day when Ross visited. Serg was an Italian immigrant and early member of the club, and the Serg Vescovi trophy race was named in his honour in 1975. The race was designed to “let your worries fade away, feel at peace within yourself, and find yourself smiling at special memories of days gone by”.
Cairn Curran Sailing Club was established in 1959 and was originally run from the boot of a car, before a
basic clubhouse was built on the shores of the lake. It was gradually improved over the years, providing a welcoming base for sailors to return home to after a sail on the lake.
