Although the sun was shining brilliantly, our rowers had to negotiate a challenging cross wind at the 2015 Head of the River at Canning.

Congratulations to PLC who continued their superb form and won the First Eight event 8 seconds ahead of nearest rivals MLC and Perth College.

PLC also won the Wendy Zuideveld Trophy to win the overall Head of the River regatta, and won the trifecta in claiming the Schoolgirls Premier Trophy for the entire season. Perth College finished 4 points ahead of MLC on the Head of the River Regatta to take out 2nd place, but MLC and PC ended up tied for second place for the overall regatta season.

Please see the results section below for more details.

This is still a chance to order merchandise from the 2015 Head of the River. Please go to the following link for details:- http://theregattashop.com.au/regattadesigns.html#SIRR_2015

Canning Regattas

Parking around Canning can be very challenging. Car pool if you must drive, or better still, catch the train and get off at Canning Station!

Spectators are not to park on the footpaths, medians, resident verges. There are car bays at Deep Water that can be utilized and walking 1km to the finish line (what a way to get your 10,000 steps in for the day!) Do not park in the trailer areas however - you will be fined!  Parking is also available at the Raffles & Library Car parks on the north side of Canning Highway. If parking on the North side of Canning Highway, please use the cycle path and walk under the bridge to the regatta. There is no pedestrian crossing on Canning Highway.

Please take note of the City of Melville Parking signs in order to avoid any fines.
