13th June 1952-1st November 2016 – A Colossus of World Rowing
If I had three words to describe Richard Ayling who has just died at the age of 64 they would be: passion, commitment and fun. He was a giant of a man, who loved, just loved, the sport – every bit of it. He always wore his heart on his sleeve. And his laughter – Richard could take a joke as well as dish them out – was always raucous. His life touched so many who helped make our sport great. But it would be typical of ‘Lurch’ – his ‘70s nickname given to him by his crewmates in Bob Janousek’s British squad – to give credit to others. Make no mistake though; British rowing owes a debt to Richard Ayling.
Kingston Small Boats Head 2016 will be held on 5th Nov 2016 in two divisions. The 1st Division starts at 10:30. The 2nd division follows at 14:00.

There was a tragic occurrence at Kingston Rowing Club on Saturday morning, 17th September, when Rosie Mitchell collapsed and lost consciousness while rowing. Paramedics arrived promptly on the scene but were unable to revive her and she died in hospital shortly thereafter. Rosie was 15 years old. Our hearts go out to Rosie’s parents, Rachel & Andrew, family and friends.
The Club have opened a Book of Condolences for Rosie Mitchell. The Book will be open for two weeks to allow as many members as possible to contribute, should they wish. The Book is in the Club entrance hall, between the kitchen and bar.
We would welcome all members to contribute - perhaps a few words about Rosie, a shared memory with her, maybe simply a message of support and sympathy for her parents and family.
Please do not remove the Book from its table.
As part of the Sports England Refurbishment Project of Canbury Boathouse electrical works will be taking place between 7th November and 16th December. There may be some disruption during this period.
