Riverview Gold Cup

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:

    I believe that water is the only drink for a wise man: wine is not so noble a liquor; and think of dashing the hopes of a morning with a cup of warm coffee, or of an evening with a dish of tea! Ah, how low I fall when I am tempted by them! Even music may be intoxicating. Such apparently slight causes destroyed Greece and Rome, and will destroy England and America.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    As I have known them passionate and fine,
    The gold for which they leave the golden line
    Of lyric is a golden light divine,
    Never the gold of darkness from a mine.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
