It is with great sadness that we report the passing of one of our past Captains – Jim MacRitchie. He died on 23 December at the age of 77, after a brief battle against cancer.

Jim was a stalwart of Scottish Rowing, and made a great contribution to the sport throughout his life. A former President of the Scottish Amateur Rowing Association, Jim was still serving the sport as an
umpire last season. A full obituary can be found in the Scotsman –

From all of us at GUBC – our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
