LAUNCESTON Church Grammar School capped off a successful weekend of rowing by taking out the Examiner Shield for the best- performed senior school at the Launceston and Henley Regatta on the Tamar River.
Grammar's open girls eight continued its impressive form to again win the blue ribbon event on day two of competition yesterday, making it back-to-back victories.
The Grammar girls had another comfortable win beating home Scotch Oakburn and a composite St Patricks College-Grammar-SBSC crew by about four lengths.
The Scotch Oakburn boys crew won the open eights from Grammar and Hutchins.
Grammar finished on top in senior aggregate points for the regatta.
Hutchins School won the Southern Cross Cup for the best- performed school on aggregate points in the junior age group events.
"We started the day on a sour note with about eight boats having been vandalised over night," Launceston and Henley Regatta Association president Adam Winzenberg said.
"Other than that it was a successful regatta rowed in good conditions and thanks to the group of about 50 people we helped us run the event."
