Des Capps

Sad news has reached us that Des Capps, of Windsor and District Canoe Club, has passed away.

These words are copied from a post by his son Duncan:

“My father Des Capps, a stalwart of the marathon racing scene and especially the veterans and masters events, died peacefully at home on 29 November just a few days after his 90th birthday after being ill for some months.

He completed DW a number of times and with Paul Mayhew held the veterans record for a time.

He was still involved with Windsor Canoe Club and was paddling well into his 80s.”
