Years of Champions" credits third place in
the Senior C-1 to New Edinburgh. The Montreal Gazette,
Aug 12, 1907, states that Grand Trunk was third
in this event. I am inclined to go with the Gazette
because it would mean Grand Trunk would have the
extra point to win the championship over Toronto
The points used in "Canada's Sprint Canoe Clubs,"
(2006) are based on Senior/Junior events only from
1904 to 1915.
Place, ON, Lake Park; Carleton Place Canoe Club
Prior to 1908, the Western clubs competed at the annual
Henley regatta in St. Catharines. This was considered
their de facto championship.
** The Gazette refers to Davidson having raced as
a guest from Lachine Boating Club, however Davidson
raced for St. Stephen's (located in Lachine) at the
national championships in 1907.
QC, St. Lawrence River, Longueuil Boating Club
Prior to 1908, the Eastern clubs competed at local regattas
only and not all clubs attended all local regattas.
The Longueuil Regatta was the last competition prior
to the National Championships and likely played a major
role in determining the final crews that would attend.
REGATTA 'LITTLE CCA' ??
Inter-City Regatta, affectionately dubbed 'Little CCA,'
was originally staged in the 1900s, ceasing with a Grand
Trunk win in 1907. The tradition of this Ottawa and Montreal
area club competition was reinstated in 1937.
