The race was conducted back on the Upper Yarra on 18th and 19th May. Wesley, for reasons unknown, did not compete.
Geelong Grammar won both races by 6 lengths and the competition was poor. The Geelong crew was as strong as the opposition weak. The margins were probably much more than Mr Carlile officially prescribed.
Geelong raced the first inter colonial schools race against St Ignatius of Sydney on the Barwon.
