I meant the Rivercat

Just a clarification on Tuesday's entry. There is something here in Sydney called the Jetcat. But for the past four days after work, I've ridden on a Rivercat. My bad.

I rode on the Shane Gould three times and the Evonne Goolagong once. I wondered who they were so I Googled them. Evonne Goolagong sounded familiar and that's because she was a famous tennis player in the 1970s. Shane Gould was a multiple medal-winning swimmer in the 1972 Olympics. Both of these women are Sydney natives. So I guess they name the Rivercats after famous Sydneysiders (this is what you call a person from Sydney.)

Rivercat, Rivercat, Rivercat.
