Community fundraiser after fire destroy sailing club

Volunteers from the Narrabeen Lake Sailing Club have launched a community fundraiser to help bring the club back to life and restock equipment for the next generation of users after it was destroyed by fire on the weekend.

Libby Paulsen, and husband David Loomes who is the chief starter of the races, said everyone was devastated at the loss of club facilities, but felt determined to “rise like a phoenix from the ashes”.
