History of the Victorian APS Head of the River rowing regatta

2016 APS Head of the River

The 149th boys Head of the River and the 36th girls Head of the River were conducted on Saturday 19th March 2016 at Nagambie Lakes. 

The weather cool to mild, overcast with a light SW wind that strengthened to moderate during the day. The wind was deemed to provide advantage to south side of the course at 11.15am, with a forecast  that the wind was only going to strengthen. Finals were therefore drawn with favoured crews on the south side.

The regatta date clashed with the National Championships with Scotch College going to extraordinary lengths to try and compete at both events. They competed in Sydney on Friday, Nagambie on Saturday and Sydney again on Sunday. If given the choice, many rowers and coaches would have preferred to compete at the National Championships. Scotch finished third at the National Championships in a smaller field, devoid of other Victorian school entries.

The strength of Melbourne Grammar over the past two years in boys year 10 rowing showed at the senior level with Melbourne Grammar taking out the first, second and third eights easily and also winning their third  year in a row of 10A eights. Geelong Grammar continued normal transmission with an 11 second win the girls Head of the River. Geelong College were again strong in the year 10 boats showing some potential for future form.

Melbourne Grammar enjoy their win
