James Smythe

The MRC was greatly saddened by the news of James Smythe’s death earlier this week.

Known to many throughout the marathon canoeing world, James was a lifelong paddler, a team manager and the long-serving secretary to the MRC.  But, first and foremost, James was a family man, and our hearts go out to all his family, particularly his wife Katie and son Ollie.  We will post a full tribute to James at a later date.
