1987 VIC Head of Schoolgirls' Regatta

The regatta moved to the Barwon River at Geelong for the first time in 1987. It has remained at that venue to the date of publishing this page in 2020.

This growth of the regatta was demonstrated again with the 4th crews broken into three division with good representation. 10 events were contested.

The regatta was hosted this year by Lauriston Girls School.
