We deeply regret having to record the passing of Colin Jackson, a member of the Committee of Marlow Regatta since 1988.

At the recent Annual General AGM John Chapman, President gave a short eulogy:-

"Colin was a member of the Committee of Marlow Regatta for many years and was known to all as a man of many parts -but to each of us something different. Colin was fun, so younger folk coached by him would tell, gregarious, a member of Marlow Rowing Club for many years and coached there and nationally. He always had an opinion and was prepared to stand his corner, but a lovely man who will be sorely missed, not only the Marlow locals but many in the wider rowing world. Colin was one of many whose support for the regatta was unstinting. He was in his element when dealing with like-minded people - past or present competitors, coaches and officials. He will leave a gap which is hard to fill.

Our hearts go out to his family, at this time.”
