The annual match between the Town Boys under the sixth form (& not in the eight) & under Elections took place, on the 24 of April, earlier than usual. The course was from Hungerford to Vauxhall Bridge, being much shorter than usual. The Queens Scholars, won by nearly two boats lengths, having kept a head throughout the whole race. The crews were as follows.
2. Waterfields (jun)
Cox Southing (jun)
