John Yuille

Swan River Rowing Club (WA)

1965 – Interstate Men’s Sculling Championship – Fourth

Bill Cooper in his book Home and Dry stated: 

Arguably the best sculler to row with Swans in the 1960s was John Yuille, grandson of Australasian FISA councillor Jim Rogers. Yuille, who was chosen as Western Australia's representative in the Interstate Championships in Perth in 1965, qualified for the final, but had to stop rowing twice because of a jammed swivel. Under the extraordinarily heavy going on that day, he was unable to make up the leeway and finished fourth.
