    Background: PRINCESS MARGARET AND LORD SNOWDON WERE AMONG THOUSANDS AT THE FASHIONABLE HENLEY ROYAL REGATTA, UK, WHO WATCHED THE NATIONAL PROVINCIAL BANK CREW BEAT WASHINGTON-LEE HIGH SCHOOL - AMERICA'S SOLE SURVIVING CREW - IN THE THAMES CHALLENGE CUP, JULY 7.

    THE BRILLIANT BANK EIGHT, WHO WON BY 2 1/2 LENGTHS, HAD SCORED THREE SUCCESSIVE VICTORIES IN THE EVENT AMERICAN CREWS. IT WAS THOUGHT THAT ONLY A MAJOR UPSET COULD PREVENT THE BANK FROM BEATING THE THAMES CREW IN THE FINAL LATER.

    STUART MACKENZIE, AUSTRALIA'S GREAT SCULLER, IS SEEN ENTERING HIS BOAT BEFORE GOING ON TO MAKE REGATTA HISTORY BY BECOMING THE FIRST MAN TO WIN THE DIAMOND SCULLS FOR SIX SUCCESSIVE YEARS. MACKENZIE BEAT YOUNG BILL BARRY (QUENTIN) BY THREE LENGTHS IN 8 MINUTES, 38 SECONDS.

    IN THE EXCITING FINAL OF THE STEWARDS CUP, RUSSIA'S 'TRUD CLUB' BEAT THE 'NEREUS' TEAM OF HOLLAND BY 1 1/2 LENGTHS. THE SOVIET CREW WON IN 7 MINUTES, 43 SECONDS.

    THE RUSSIAN NAVY CREW RETAINED THE GRAND CHALLENGE CUP BY BEATING ITALY'S 'MOTO GUZZI', THE EUROPEAN CHAMPIONS, BY 1/3 OF A LENGTH IN 6 MINUTES, 40 SECONDS. THE SOVIET TEAM HELD THEIR LEAD FOR MOST OF THE WAY, BUT IN A DESPERATE FIGHTING FINISH THE ITALIANS CLOSED RAPIDLY. BUT THE USSR NAVY CREW HELD A VERY SLENDER LEAD TO WIN MAGNIFICENT RACE.
