2013 APS Head of the River
The 146th boys Head of the River and the 33rd girls Head of the River were conducted on Saturday 16th March 2013 at Nagambie Lakes.
A moderate cross head breeze in the morning freshened by late morning. This led to a redraw of lanes in the finals to place the seeded crews into the favoured lanes. In the end the breeze moderated and the redraw was unnecessary. However it could not be undone.
There was controversy before the regatta began with Melbourne Grammar first and second crews being relegated to last in their heats due to an infringement of APS training rules. With seeded heats from the results of the racing at the Scotch Mercantile regatta, this could have been an issue in adverse weather conditions and lane seeding being implemented.
