History of AAGPS Head of the River Rowing Regatta

1915 NSW AAGPS Head of the River

The Great War was a great influence on all parts of society. To the credit of the schools, rowing and the regatta continued.

Shore won for a third time in a row this year but this was to the last victory for many years.

The weather for the regatta was poor with a strong southerly wind making tough conditions for the rowers on the Cabarita to Gladesville course. The drawing of the lanes was therefore of far greater significance than normal. Despite these conditions, all first eights finished within a length of each other in great racing.
