AQUATICS. KISSING POINT REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Chronicle — 6 April 1861

A Q U A T I C S. KISSING POINT REGATTA.   Among the varied amusements offered to the inhabi- tants of Sydney and its neighbourhood, the Regatta at Kissing Point certainly deserved a far larger share of patronage than was accorded to it. Whether it was that the notice was not sufficiently long, or that so many other things came in the way, we cannot tell ; but at any rate there was attached to this aquatic tournament a marvel- lous want of excitement. No trouble had been spared by the gentlemen on the committee to make the sport first-rate. The programme was almost all that could have been wished, the prizes were certainly of average value, and, by way of affording every opportunity to person who desired to contend, entries were received in Sydney, as well as at Ryde. When so much energy and good feelings are exhibited, as were on this occasion, we are always sorry to observe anything like apathy on the part of those who ought to show a proper appreciation of the labor g...
