Summary

In the Stewards’ Challenge Cup at the Henley Regatta, the Thames Rowing Club had won in 1909 and 1911. The European Championships had been won in 1909 and 1910 by crews from Italy and in 1911 and 1912 by Switzerland. But neither Italy nor Switzerland entered the Olympic event.

This left the field to the British crew from the Thames Rowing Club and the somewhat unknown German crew from the Ludwigshafener Ruderverein. The Thames crew barely survived the semi-finals. Germany’s Ludwigshafener crew was not pressed in getting to the final where they defeated the British by two lengths.
