Lane Cove 12ft Sailing Skiff Club FUNdraiser – with Enormous Horns
It’s been one year since an arson fire destroyed Lane Cove 12ft Sailing Skiff Club’s Western Shed. The Club was home to 46 boats including Sabots, Flying 11s, Cherubs and Lasers. All 46 boats, rigging, sails, spinnakers and equipment were destroyed on Sunday 16th September 2018 at 3 am. Members had just begun the 2018/2019 season 12 hours earlier.
Lane Cove is a strong volunteer member club and the members rallied on that fateful day. Almost a year has passed and the Club’s Rebuild Sub-Committee has achieved many of the its goals with fundraising action plans executed and liaison with Lane Cove Council for temporary storage facilities. State and Federal members and the sailing fraternity came to the Club’s aid with donations of sailing products and raffle/auction items.
Lane Cove 12ft Sailing Skiff Club was able to continue racing for 2018/2019 Season. Boats were borrowed and rostered for Saturday at Lane Cove and Sunday at Drummoyne, brought from interstate, relocated from training venues and spare hulls rigged.
To commence 2019/2020 Season in a celebratory manner please join our many supporters and members Celebrating One Year of Business as Usual by joining us at “Lane Cove 12ft Sailing Skiff Club FUNdraiser with Enormous Horns” Saturday 7th September at Hunters Hill Sailing Club.

Lane Cove 12ft Sailing Skiff Club is on track to Rebuild the Western Shed in Stages, ending with a modern multi-function facility meeting the club’s needs while improving the amenity of Lane Cove River with improved public access to the foreshore which is in keeping with the ethos of a local club supporting youth sailing in social and fair racing camaraderie starting the 101st season with history grounded at Stuart St, Longueville.
