Vale Paul Rowe

Sadly Paul passed away after a long debilitating illnes. Nick Hunter has provided the following comments on Paul. Paul started with the AIS as a scholarship coach in 1985, before being appointed as the AIS sculling coach from 1990 to 1994. During his time at the AIS Paul coached Australian teams at the 1991, 1993 and 1994 World Championships, and the Australia women’s double scull at the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games.

Prior to coaching Paul had a distinguished career as an oarsman, and was the Australian lightweight single sculler at the 1975 World Championships in Nottingham. Outside of his AIS commitments Paul always had an eye to both the grass roots of the sport and the next generation of rowers, and regularly found time to coach a range of club and junior athletes. Several of Paul’s former club athletes have since become respected coaches on Australian teams or senior administrators in Australian sport.

Paul is survived by his wife Lizzie, children Kate, Jane, Maud and Jack, and grandchildren.
