Hollandia Roeiclub (HRC) is a Dutch rowing club.

They appear in the 2010 movie The Social Network (which was based on real events) beating the Harvard team of the Winklevoss twins during the Henley Royal Regatta in 2004, which they won representing the Holland Acht (Holland 8), the official Dutch rowing team. As a result of their win (the first Dutch men's 8 victory at Henley, which they repeated in 2006) they qualified for the 2004 Summer Olympics in which they won the silver medal.[1]

In 1996 the Holland Acht (then not represented by the Hollandia Roeiclub) won the gold medal at the Atlanta Olympics.[2]
