Staying with the official reports from the umpire of each respective race:
Dartmouth over Radley in the Temple: "A powerful and polished Dartmouth crew took an early lead and from the barrier under-rated Radley to draw away and win comfortably."
Noble and Greenough over Phillips Andover in the PE: "An exciting race. Noble & Greenough went into an early lead and looked to have the race, the Phillips mounted a stirring challenge at the Mile and might even have rowed through. N&G were unruffled, and went away to win strongly."
Univ. of London over Dartmouth in the Britannia: "Both crews set off a a high rating but UL established a commanding lead by the first singal and although Dartmouth never gave up UL were able to win comfortably."
Princeton frosh over King's College in the Temple: "Princeton, a very polished and powerful crew, took a very early lead and were never in any danger of competition."
Holy Spirit over Choate Rosemary in the PE: "Choate did what was probably their only option - ie. to build an early lead. HS appeared unruffled by this and mounted a powerful challenge at 3/4 mile. They rowed clean through their opposition at 1 mile and went on to win strongly. Choate's bladework became very erratic."
Bantam BC over Thames in the Britannia: "This loked quite tight to the Barrier, but from there out Thames looked dispirited, and failed to challenge, while the Americans, despite some slightly suspect bladework in the bows, moved strongly away."
Belmont HS over St. Joseph's Patrician in the PE: "Belmont Hill moved off the start very fast with more control and effect than their opponents. They established a commanding lead against which St. Joseph's could find no counter, though they kept a game rate of striking the to the finish."
Delaware over St. Cuthbert's Society in the Temple: Both crews started during the pre-race instruction. A somewhat unveven contest between a very competent crew and one which got progressively more ragged. Hard to imagine St. Cuthbert's qualified!"
Univ. of Washington over Agecroft in the Britannia: University of Washington steered a shaky course downth the island, then then established a lead which they maintained to the end. Agecroft kept trying. Both crews steered indifferently."
Potomac BC over Weybridge in the Wyfold: "Weybridge received an official warning for being late at the start. The crews were level until the mile and both were warned for steering, responding instantly. From the mile Potomac drew away with effective power."
Team cheer of the day/week/month: for the Staines crew: "Come on Staines, come on Staines, come on Staines, come Staines, come Staines, come Staines, come Staines, come Staines..."
