Cairn Curran Sailing Club turns 60

A fleet of competitors headed to Baringhup earlier this month for the CCSCʼs season launch and trophy race.

The Cairn Curran Sailing Club marked its season opening and 60th anniversary at Baringhup earlier this month.

A crowd of over 100 people, made up of current members, past members, commodores, club champions and life members, were in attendance for the opening ceremony hosted by the club on October 4.

Despite light wind forcing a postponement of the scheduled trophy race, it eventually got underway when the breeze swung around to the north east and lifted enough to conduct a race, with 11 boats competing for the 60th Anniversary Trophy.

Completing the four-lap triangular course in 56 minutes, and winning on corrected time, was 11-time club champion, past commodore and life member Craig Ginnivan.

In second place, 26 seconds behind on corrected time, was past club champion Ross Bennett.

Just 10 seconds behind Bennett, in third place was club member Max Fry.

Both Max and Craig also set off to compete in the 2019 Finn Masters in South Australia last week.

Ray Eastwood of Maryborough took out the ancient mariner award for eldest competitor to complete the course.
