The Holland Beker regatta dates back to 1886, and was originally a men’s single sculls championship, for which the prize was the ‘Beker’ (Dutch for cup). The women’s single sculls event was added in 1988. No British woman has yet won the trophy. The men’s event has been won twice by British scullers – Callum Dixon in 2022 and Arthur Everitt of London RC in 1895.
