The Riverview Gold Cup is a Rowing Regatta for high school students, held annually by Saint Ignatius' College at Riverview, in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.
Founded by Father Joseph Dalton, S.J., the founding Rector of Saint Ignatius' College, it is one of the oldest rowing events in Australia and the oldest New South Wales schoolboy regatta. It is held annually, typically in March, on Sydney's Lane Cove River against schoolboy and schoolgirl crews, with the inclusion of club boats in Men's Open VIII.
Famous quotes containing the words cup and/or gold:
“If you desire to drain to the dregs the fullest cup of scorn and hatred that a fellow human being can pour out for you, let a young mother hear you call dear baby it.”
—Jerome K. Jerome (18591927)
“1st Murderer. Wheres thy conscience now?...
2nd Murderer. Ill not meddle with it. It makes a man a coward.... It fills a man full of obstacles. It made me once restore a purse of gold that by chance I found. It beggars any man that keeps it. It is turned out of towns and cities for a dangerous thing, and every man that means to live well endeavors to trust to himself and live without it.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
