Ron Needs

It is with great sadness that we report that our legendary CUWBC Coach and stalwart supporter and GB Rowing Coach Ron Needs has passed away.

Ron’s contributions to British rowing, in particular women’s university rowing at Cambridge and in the GB squad, broke new ground and delivered unprecedented results. His passion and commitment to CUWBC will live on in everything that we do.

Our warmest thoughts and condolences are with his family at this time. We will share details of memorial arrangements once they are known.

    It was a privilege to be a small part of Ron and Roger’s legendary coaching team – Oxford rarely got a look in in those days. Very happy memories of his visits to Fenners to measure the squad and keep an eye on the training.
