1929 NSW AAGPS Head of the River

Sydney High School was not to be denied two years running and came back with a fine win in both heat and final. This made nine wins from 10 starts. George Hancock was again the coach.

The conditions on the finals day were difficult with a strong cross wind making for choppy conditions.
