History of the Victorian APS Head of the River rowing regatta

2017 APS Head of the River

The 150th boys Head of the River and the girls 37th Head of the River were conducted on Saturday 25th March 2017 at Nagambie Lakes. The weather was warm and with a tail breeze. The conditions were superb for rowing this important event.

The senior races were conducted in the usual manner with seeded heats from the results of the Scotch Mercantile regatta with first three to the final. Scotch College and Melbourne Grammar were the in form crews in the boys and Geelong Grammar faced competition from Geelong College in the girls. Clearly the good results in the College year 10 rowing was making its way to the senior ranks.

Both Scotch College and Geelong Grammar won their respective Heads of the River by clear water in fine displays of rowing.
