VALE // Craig Cunningham

Sadly, on Friday the 1st of December North Bondi SLSC lost one of it’s greats in Craig “Cungy” Cunningham.

The Cunningham’s are a four generation North Bondi SLSC family, the type that make up the fabric of our great club. Craig was a 60 year member and an Australian Champion, winning the senior Surf Boat Championship in 1959. He was a fierce competitor that coached and mentored many athletes in the art of Surf Boat rowing and sweeping. He was a tough but fair man, very well respected in the surf boat community and will be sadly missed.
