From the 2004/05 Yarra Yarra Rowing Club annual report:-

We regret to advise of the passing of Alex Mansfield in June 2005.

From the mid 1950’s Alex coached University High School who rowed out of YYRC during that time.

Alex actively encouraged University High School students to join YYRC that resulted in many joining. Most notable amongst these are life members Jimmy Wilson and club historian Peter Gill.

Our sincere condolences go to the Mansfield family
