Hugh Day – January 2017

It is with great sadness that we note the death of D H T (Hugh) Day (Clare 1947) on 14 January 2017.   Hugh sailed on the winning Cambridge Varsity Team at Poole in 1950 – see (the rather poor copy of ) the team photo below – and was a long term supporter of the Club.   Near-contemporary Dick Vernon (Clare 1945/46 and 1948/50 due to army service) comments:

Hugh was at Clare with me and we used to cycle on a tandem to St Ives where, at that time, Cambridge sailed in Fireflies on the river Ouse. In later years he was a member of the Aldeburgh Yacht Club.

There will be a service of Thanksgiving at 2.30pm on Wednesday 1st February at All Saints Church in Newmarket and afterwards at The Jockey Club.
