The Sydney Cup was donated to Rowing Australia by the NSW Government and was first presented in 2005 by the NSW Minister for Women, The Hon. Ms Sandra Nori. The trophy was engraved with all previous winners since the commencement of the event in 1994.
This event is relatively new but has become a great event from the first race. The competition amongst girls eights is superb.
