This was the last of the four oared races for the Head of the River.
The race was conducted on the new Upper Yarra course on 12th October and for the first time with a four crew first and final.
The Scotch crew led from the start and were steered well. The Wesley cox did not steer so well but it only impacted the margin, not the result.
Starter: Mr Harold A C Irving
Umpire: Mr William Potter
Judge: Mr L D Bird
