History of AAGPS Head of the River Rowing Regatta

1927 NSW AAGPS Head of the River

There are no other schools who take a hat trick in their first three years of joining the competition. Sydney High School did this under George Hancock.

Hancock joined Allan Ramsay of Shore and W H Savigny of Grammar in coaching the hat trick.

The race was very interesting as High was last until Breakfast Point but went onto win by 3/4 length in an irresistible finish.
