In an incredible week of racing at the Sydney International Regatta Centre, NSW won all four major interstate Eights races, including the King’s and Queen’s Cups for the first time.

It was an action-packed week with around 500 races, 25,000 people through the gates and thousands tuning in from around the globe by live stream.
This year’s Regatta was extra special with the King’s Cup celebrating its centenary. To mark the occasion, a museum exhibit was on display throughout the week with families of the 1919 King’s Cup winning crew taking part in an emotional ceremony.
In another first, the Sydney International Regatta Centre teamed up with the St Vincent de Paul Society Container Deposit Scheme which saw more than 3,500 containers recycled through the Return and Earn program, helping to support the good work of Vinnies in local communities.
