The eights race was keenly contested between NSW and VIC with NSW the victors. The first three crews were in essence in one race and a big gap back to the others in another race. The Victorians allowed only 4 weeks to get their crew together and vowed to provide for a longer period in the next year.

The Tasmanian crew was coached by George McKenzie who coached the Southern Tasmanian crew. George originally hailed from Melbourne being a member of the Victorian crew in 1897 and who went onto coach Scots' College in Sydney.

Men's Interstate Sculling Championship—The President's Cup

Distance: 2.5 Miles
Time: 16.19.0
Margin: 4 lengths

1st TAS - Cecil L McVilly
2nd VIC - Percy C Ivens
3rd NSW - Arch Priddle

The sculling race was won creditably by McVilly in his first attempt at this event. It was a good race between McVilly and Ivens for most of the race but Priddle was well behind.
