Rowing loses member of a rowing dynasty

British Rowing is sad to announce the death of Nick Bevan on 12th January, aged 72 years, following a long illness.

Nick was part of a Bevan rowing dynasty, with an extended family that on one occasion filled a rowing Eight.  His uncle, E.V. Bevan won Gold in 1928 at the Amsterdam Olympics and whilst Nick was an accomplished rower himself, with wins at Henley Royal Regatta and the Boat Race, he will be remembered by many for his considerable contribution to school rowing.

Our sincere condolences go to his family and many friends in rowing.

The family have said that they will hold a small and private family funeral which will be followed by a memorial service at a later date.
