Reg Free's achievements clearly rank him in the category of one of Tasmania's finest oarsmen: Reg represented Tasmania 11 times and Australia three times from 1962 to 1977. He rowed for his State in more Kings Cups than any other oarsman. At 19, he was chosen for Tasmania in the 1962 Kings Cup at Ballarat.
In all, he rowed in nine Kings Cups. He also sculled in Kings Cup regattas twice—and both times won the Australian championship (1969 and 1970).
In 1967 Reg became the first Tasmanian oarsman to be chosen in the Australian eight. The Australian crew finished sixth in the World championships in Vichy, France.
In 1970 Reg was coach of the Tasmanian four, guiding the team from the number two seat, when it became the first Tasmanian Four to win an Australian title. The Tasmanian Four was selected to represent Australia in Canada for the World championship. In two years from 1967 to 1969 he had rowed for his country in sculling, fours and eights.
Since his retirement, Reg has maintained his involvement in rowing as a coach.
