It is with great sadness that PaddleNSW has received news of the passing of David James on the evening of 21st January. Our sympathies extend to his family, MWKC and RSL members and the many people he touched with his unbounded generosity. His contribution to paddling benefitted many, and his loss will be felt throughout the paddling community.
