The winning crew was all from one club and was the first club crew to win the King’s Cup since the Hberfield crew of 1948. The Victorians led from the start and the interest in the first half of the race was a battle for second placing between New South Wales and Queensland. New South Wales won that contest and finished second with a long margin back to third placing.

This was a great race between the winning New South Wales crew and the Victorian and Tasmanian crews. At the 1000 metre mark there was little to separate these three crews. By the 1500 metre mark Victoria maintained a slight lead from New South Wales. However a sustained push by New South Wales crew over the last few hundred metres broke through the Victorians and they went on to win the race.

This was another tightly fought race, particularly between Victoria, New South Wales and Tasmania. Victoria got a slight lead at the 500 metres and improved on this position by the 1000 metre mark.
