On Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd October at the Scottish Schools' Rowing Council Head Races over a 4.5 kilometre course on the Forth & Clyde Canal between Banknock and Auchinstarry, 32 members of the Aberdeen Schools Rowing Association celebrated considerable success when on Saturday they won the Scottish Junior Club Champions' Fours Cup for the 7th year in succession and on Sunday came equal second behind the Glasgow Schools' Rowing Club in the Scottish Junior Club Champions' Sculling Cup.
