    Background: East German crews won four of the five finals at the Royal Henley rowing regatta which ended today (Saturday). East German crows won the Grand Challenge Cup - the premier event - as well as the Prince Phillip Cup for Coxed Fours, the Silver Goblets and Nickalls' Cup and the Stewards Challenge Cup. In other events, Cornell University beat Nottingham and Union Rowing Club in the Thames Challenge Cup for Eights. In the Diamond Sculls Martin Studach of Switzerland beat West Germany's European champion Joachim Meissner.

    The Grand Cup went to SC Wissenschaft, the East German eight from Leipzig. They rowed their way to a 2 1/2 lengths win over Tideway Scullers, Britain's top club crew.

    The East German crew trailed by a canvas early in the race but a spurt after 600 yards (550 metres) carried them past the flagging British crew.

    Another East German team, S.G. Dynamo from Potsdam, beat the Dutch Nereus Club from Amsterdam, in the Stewards Challenged Cup for Coxless Fours.

    The only American win of the regatta came with Cornell University' victory over Nottingham and Union in the Thames Challenge for eights. Nottingham and Union led early in the race, but Cornell University, the United States sprint champions, overtook and held the lead.

    In the Diamond Sculls faulty steering handicapped West German oarsman Joachim Meissner. World champion Martin Studach of Switzerland had a convincing win in the event.
