Sailing club gets cash to stay on course


THE Mordialloc Sailing Club will be helped out of troubled waters after receiving $15,000 from Kingston Council for “emergency repairs.”

Council resolved on 25 March to approve the funding boost. The mayor Georgina Oxley said “for many years the club has played an active role in our community by offering a range of sailing programs.”

“Council is happy to step in to provide funding for emergency repairs to take place,” she said.

The club will contribute over $8000 of their own money towards the repairs.

“The emergency repairs will ensure programs including the tackers sail training for 7-12 years olds, schools programs with 100 students from Mordialloc College, and the boat lending service for the general community can continue as planned,” Cr Oxley said.
