Dame Di Ellis, 1938 - 2017.

It is very sad to hear of the death of Di Ellis. Di has done a great deal of work for the sport of rowing, being an instrumental figure and stalwart of British rowing for over 60 years.

To understand all the work that Di undertook for the sport, please read the obituary on the Britsh Rowing website.

We are very grateful for her support and on behalf of the rowing in Yorkshire I wish to pass on our condolences to her family and friends.

Andrew Cawood
Chairman, Yorkshire Rowing Council.
