Head of Schoolgirls Rowing Regatta History

2004 VIC Head of Schoolgirls' Regatta

The regatta continued to grow and measures were taken to keep the racing on Sunday to a reasonable finish time. Accordingly, races with semi finals, did not now have petite finals.

The regatta was again managed by event manager School Snowsports Development Foundation. The experiment of three years ago was bringing the rewards of event experience and expertise. 

The Committee also took the opportunity to thank one of the great contributors to the regatta, Jim Spithill. In the program,the following comments were made:

The Head of the Schoolgirls Regatta Committee would like to acknowledge the enormous contribution that Jim Spithill has made to the Regatta, and to rowing through his involvement with Rowing Victoria. Jim has served on the HOSG Regatta Committee as a Vice President since the HOSG Committee was conceived, and was also the Executive Officer of the HOSG Committee for the past two years. The Committee wish Jim the very best in his new endeavours and pursuits and hope that we will again see him involved in the regatta in some capacity. A trophy will be presented this year in recognition of Jim's contribution to the Head of the Schoolgirls Regatta.

The Committee decided to affiliate with Rowing Victoria this year. The program records that this was an important symbolic step in acknowledging that the key stakeholders in the development of schoolgirl rowing were working together to advance the sport.
