The Barrington Cup

The Barrington Cup

The Barrington Cup was donated by the Tasmanian Rowing Council to the Australian Rowing Council in 1984 to commemorate the first National Championship Regatta at Lake Barrington International rowing course.



Schoolboy eights have been a regular fixture at the Interstate Championships but they were generally neither representative of Australian school crews nor of the nature of a National Championship until 1966.

After 1966 some schoolboy races held in non National Championship years were of the calibre of National Championships such as 1973 when it was a test race for the Junior Championships. This race has been included as a National Championship despite not having that designation.
