This was the only 1904 rowing event with competitors from outside the United States as Vesper Boat Club of Philadelphia was matched against the Toronto Argonauts of Canada. Vesper was the defending gold medalist, having won the title at Paris in 1900. Vesper won again with a three-length margin over the Argonauts. Two members of the Vesper crew, stroke John Exley and coxswain Lou Abell, had been with the crew at the 1900 Olympics.
