"Participate in the annual Poe Cup, where students are put to the test in a rules "be damned" boat race."
-Nevermore Academy Official Website [1]


The Poe Cup is an annual race held on the Jericho River by Nevermore Academy in which four teams compete against each other, each representing their dormitory. Each team selects the name of a poem by Edgar Allan Poe to be their team name.

History[]

The first Poe Cup took place in 1897.

Description[]

Rules[]

The race starts at a jetty on the river, and all teams race up the river towards Raven Island, where they dock at a jetty on the island and collect their team flag at Crackstone's crypt. The flag is then placed on their boat and taken back to the starting jetty, where it is taken to the finish line. The first team to reach this finish line wins.

Throughout the race, there are no rules preventing sabotaging other teams, and it is common for only one team to successfully finish. [2]

Rewards[]

The team that wins the cup also wins bragging rights for a year as well as some special privileges, although it is unknown exactly what those privileges are.
