Tabulation of Points
The Montreal Gazette, Aug 9, 1948, reports that Lachine is the first club to win six championships. (This also happened in 1932 with four championships) This ignores Toronto Canoe Club's 7-year championship run from 1908-1914. It can be assumed that the reporters are only including years since the burgee was first presented to the winning club (1927).

1948 sees the first mention of a 'divisional' burgee, which Lachine had won as far back as 1943. This has yet to be verified.
