BROWN CUP TROPHY

Brown Cup Trophy

The Brown Cup Trophy was donated to the event by Bruce and Dorothy Brown on May 1st, 1993. The trophy travels to and from every event but resides permanently in the UVic Walk of Excellence located in the Centre for Athletics, Recreation and Special Abilities (CARSA). The trophy holds the record of each member of victorious crews throughout the year. Over the years four layers have been added to the trophy and it has taken on legendary proportions.

Championship Oars

As the Brown Cup is on permanent display in CARSA, the winning crew is awarded the Brown Cup Oar which travels to and from the winning boathouse annually.  Each oar has the original colour scheme of the UBC and UVic oars on either side and thus allows the winning crew to display their colours when the oar comes home.

DOWD-CAMPBELL RESERVE CUP

DOWD-CAMPBELL RESERVE CUP

In the late 2000's the Brown Cup was able to introduce the Reserve Race for the second ranked eight. This race is now a fixture in the event.  The Joe Dowd and Howie Campbell Cup was introduced in 2014 and names of the Reserve crews were listed there. 

BROWN CUP CAR

The University of Victoria men's program traditionally purchases a Brown Cup Car at a discounted price. The car is then decorated in university colours and driven to and from the race course. Due to an unfortunate car breakdown in 2012, the crews now travel in modern vehicles on race day.
