Obituary: Brian Clarke

  • 20 Feb 15

It is with great sadness that we report that rowing stalwart Brian Clarke passed away on 20 February 2015. Brian was a former President of St George’s Rowing Club and he has had a lifetime association with that club. He first rowed for the club in 1959 and continued until 1963. He's also been club captain, secretary and treasurer to the Legion of Rowers. In more recent times he has also served as a Race Official and has been Chief Starter at events such as the Aon Maadi Cup and the Entry Coordinator at the New Zealand Rowing Championships.

The New Zealand flag was flown at half mast today at the 2015 Bankstream NZ Rowing Championships in his memory.

Rowing New Zealand wishes to extend its sympathies with the Clarke family at this time.
