During a special ceremony Tuesday at the Henley Royal Regatta, the new King's Cup Trophy was unveiled. The cup will be awarded to the winner of the King's Cup event being run to celebrate the centennial anniversary of the 1919 Henley Peace Regatta, run the first spring following the end of World War II.
To commemorate the 100-year anniversary, Henley organized a new King's Cup race, and invited the original six countries - Australia, Canada, Great Britain, France, New Zealand and the United States, plus Germany and the Netherlands to send mixed gender military crews to race. Australia won the 1919 event and kept the original cup. A new one was commissioned with each country contributing symbolic material to be used in making the new cup.
