History of the Queensland GPS Head of the River rowing regatta

1986 QLD GPS Head of the River

The 64th boys Head of the River was conducted on Saturday 22nd March 1986 at Hinze Dam, Queensland. 

In 1986, Anglican Church Grammar School commemorated Noel Langton by naming a four oared boat they purchased that year. Langton is an old boy of Churchie who is credited with helping Adair Ferguson winning the World Championship in the Women’s Lightwieght Singlce Scull in 1985. Adair had been a late starter in the sport and Noel developed her natural talent in an extraordinarily fast rise to supremacy.
