Dedicated Marlow Regatta President Retires

For nearly 60 years Mr Bill Findlay has been a stalwart of the Marlow Regatta. He has held various positions within the committee during his years of unfaltering service. Most recently he has been the Regatta’s President. On Wednesday 28th March Bill Findlay retired from this position. Bill has undoubtedly been one of the most hands on members of the committee and has always been the first to get stuck in! Whilst in Marlow, his skill in laying the course, piling the start, and then constructing the various items within the Enclosure was unsurpassed. There are few individuals as committed to this event and the sport of rowing as Bill.

The regatta has experienced extensive changes during his tenure on the committee and Bill has played a central role in establishing the Regatta in its new venue at Dorney Lake. Unquestionably Marlow Regatta is indebted to Bill for his commitment and support over the past sixty years. On 1st April 2012 a lunch, attended by approximately 70 of Bills’ Rowing and Regatta friends was held at Leander Club to celebrate his contribution to the sport. A portrait, painted by a fellow committee member Hugh Evans was presented in recognition of his service.

The Presidency has now passed to Mr John Chapman. Marlow Regatta would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Bill Findlay and his family for their support and also wish Mr Chapman all the best for his Presidency.
