Sad news – Stewart Sinclair

It is with great sadness that we pass on the news of the death of Stewart Sinclair, on 8th August 2017.

Stewart, 71, was a member of Cantabs for more than 20 years and was Club Treasurer for four years in the early 2000s. As a regular member of the Hunter crew, Stewart’s quiet encouragement influenced numerous rowers over the decades and he will be sadly missed. The affection in which he was held was demonstrated in last year’s Christmas Head: with illness keeping Stewart off the water his crew-mates entered dressed-up in tribute to him, complete with balding heads and luxuriant beards.

Our thoughts and sympathies go to Alison, and the rest of Stewart’s family. Details of the funeral arrangements will be passed on the Hunter crew when they have been finalised; if anyone else would like to be kept informed, please contact Gill Cooper.
