Jump to: navigation, search

The Double Sculls Challenge Cup is a rowing event for men's double sculls at the annual Henley Royal Regatta on the River Thames at Henley-on-Thames in England. It is open to male crews from all eligible rowing clubs. Two clubs may combine to make an entry.

On the centenary of the regatta in 1939 a Centenary Double Sculls event was introduced. The crews in the final were Jack Beresford and Dick Southwood of Thames Rowing Club against G Scherli and E Broschi of Trieste, who were the reigning European champions. The result was a dead-heat.[1]
