Rowing NSW is saddened by the passing of Lee Chaumont after a long fight with cancer. Lee passed away on Saturday 6th October 2018, aged 61 years.
A member of Nepean Rowing Club where a single scull is named the "Lee Chaumont", Lee competed for Nepean up until 2015 and has been a regular volunteer in recent years. Lee was renowned for her incredible accuracy, matched with her calm and friendly demeanour, while at work timekeeping at regattas at the Sydney International Regatta Centre.
Lee Chaumont and good friend Tina De Vries were jointly awarded the Rowing NSW Volunteer of the Year Award in 2015-2016.
