South Grafton High School has been the fourth most successful school in CHS rowing, with 91 wins in the 53 years of CHS rowing, behind Grafton High with 111 wins and Maclean High on 154 wins. The Clarence schools have certainly performed well over the years, with only Sydney Boys High ahead of them with 168 wins,.

Racing commences at 8:45 a.m. on Thursday and 8:00 a.m. on Friday, finishing around lunchtime both days. The draw for the regatta can be found here. Spectators are more than welcome to come down to the Rowing Club to view the racing.
