Henley Women’s Regatta is the premier regatta for women in the United Kingdom. Each year more than 1,500 rowers travel from all over the UK and from across the world to compete in this prestigious event. Held on the rowing world’s iconic stretch of the River Thames, HWR offers exciting side-by-side match racing for a wide range of competitors, from Juniors to University and Club to Elite level. Spectators are welcome to watch and enjoy the racing along the full length of the course – no tickets required!

The Committee of Henley Women’s Regatta is undertaking a review of the regatta  competition structure  ‘to provide a pathway for girls and women from junior to elite so they can excel in their rowing careers’ and which takes into consideration the Competition Review which will be introduced fully from April 2018. Details of the events to be included in the 2018 regatta will be available by November

The Regatta will continue to use HWR specific eligibility criteria for events (which may be amended for 2018)  in addition to using the Ranking Index. The 2018 rules will be published by the end of November.
