Henley Women’s Regatta 2019

We aim to stage a competition where women from all over the UK can come and compete against the very best in their event. To increase the level of competition and add an international element to the regatta we actively encourage crews to come to abroad to compete at Henley Women’s Regatta, race against our best British schools, universities and clubs on the famous Henley stretch of the Thames.

As the organising committee our priority is to provide a great competitor experience for those racing and coaching.   From the stake boat team to the Head of the Umpires Committee we all aim to be exceedingly professional and work very hard to stage a well-run event. The regatta is run solely by volunteers who give very generously of their time to ensure the event runs smoothly each year.

We look forward to you joining us in 2019 for another exceptional event with close exciting racing.
