History of NSW Combined High Schools Rowing Regattas

NSW CHS Champion Schools

The first ten years of CHS competition were limited to events for boys with the title of Champion School awarded to the pointscore winner. An invitation event for girls was introduced in 1975 leading to a rapid growth in girls’ participation. A pointscore and trophy for the Champion Girls School was introduced in 1977.

In 1980, the title of Champion School, previously applied to the winner of the boys pointscore, was transferred to the winner of the combined boys and girls pointscores. A new trophy was awarded to the overall pointscore winner with the original trophy retained for presentation to the Champion Boys School.
