Remembering a friend

The international scientific conference, in the memory of Nikolay Sergeevich Kopanev, took place in St. Petersburg.

Apart from the main topic – history of philosophy and political studies – it included the round table discussion, devoted to the retrospective review of Russian rowing. Sincere enthusiast of rowing Nikolay Sergeevich paid a lot of efforts and energy to this subject. In the year of the 150th anniversary of Russian rowing, with his active assistance the first rowing manual in Russian, written by Englishman Willkinson was reissued, the exhibition about the history of the sport of rowing organized in the Russian National Library. Nikolay Sergeevich was the archivist of the revived English Rowing Club and made a lot to restore the history of the club. Unfortunately the jubilee’s celebration this year, finalized by the conference presentation of the club historian V.V.Karpov, happened without him. The club starts a new 50 years of it’s life, keeping memory of all its members and friends, who made a worthy input into the history of the English RC. N.S.Kopanev’s is one of them..
