We also have social memberships available!
The Carrum Sailing and Motor Boat Club has a long and distinguished history. In 1946 the Patterson River Motor Yacht Club was formed. After 20 years of successful operation it was decided to split the club into the Patterson River Motor Boat Club and the Carrum Sailing Club. These two clubs continued for the next 50 years having separate websites, club premises, and members. 3 years ago the declining memberships, the poor state of both club rooms and the change in demographics. saw the two clubs come together. This was the beginning of the merge combining resources with a view to getting a grant and funding for a new building on the site of the Carrum Sailing Club.
