history of head of school girls rowing regatta victoria

1993 VIC Head of Schoolgirls' Regatta

The regatta host this year was Genazzano F.C.J. College.

The regatta had grown to 22 events. Quad sculls were now a permanent event on the program.

Administratively, the innovation this year a timing system.

A special general meeting of the association was held in September 1992 to adopt the principles for the operation of the regatta from 1994 onwards. It defined the respective roles of the association and the host schools as follows:


(i) set out a detailed brief for the overall conduct of the Regatta and associated activities by the Host School. 

(ii) manage the merchandising side of the Regatta, in conjunction with the Host School. That for the 1994 Regatta 50% of nett profit on merchandising be returned to the Host School, with this percentage being reviewed subsequently. 

(iii) prepare a pro forma document by which schools can register their interest in taking on the role of Host School. 

(iv) conduct a ballot to pre-set the Host School role for 3 years ahead: the first such ballot to be in May 1993 for the 1995-1997 Regattas, with a 3-year cycle continuing thereafter. 

(v) monitor progress and assist the Host School annually in preparation for the Regatta. 

(vi) ensure that funds generated by the Regatta are used in the broadest and best interests of schoolgirl rowing, and ensure that funds raised by the Host School be used for the development of rowing in the Host School. 

Host school

(i)    conduct the Regatta in a manner consistent with the agreed specifications.

(ii)    work in with the Committee, the previous and the subsequent Host Schools in conducting the regatta.
