History of AAGPS Head of the River Rowing Regatta

1926 NSW AAGPS Head of the River

Sydney High School won again in their second start. This was the second school to do achieve such a feat. St Ignatius were struck down with illnesss in both the eight and the fours. They even questioned whether to row.

Also worth noting that St Ignatius was a small schoool with only 40 boys in the senior school at that stage. It explains the lack of success during this period.
