A brief history

At the Maadi Regatta of 1980, held on the Wairoa River, a cup was donated by Noel Lynch for the Girls Under 19 Four. On finals day, Officials were unable to keep to time. By dark the Boys Under 17 Eight and the Girls Under 19 Four had not been rowed. These races were then scheduled to be held at 6:30 a.m. Sunday morning. Because of this, Noel Lynch and Enoka Macdonald decided that the trophy should be called the Dawn Cup. It was first won by Queen Charlotte College.
