Regatta on the Hawkesbury

Windsor and Richmond Gazette, page 2: “The forthcoming Regatta appears to be the general topic of conversation amongst all classes, in this dashing little town and neighbourhood, and we fully anticipate from the "arrangements made in getting it up, it will be a rich treat, being the first aquatic recreation ever held on the lovely and majestic stream of the Hawkesbury. Boats of every description, from first-class gigs and- whale boats, to little dinghies, and even Aboriginal canoes are already to be seen floating on the river, fitted up in first-rate style, ornamented with their various badges of distinction.”
