International Crews should make sure that they have read “The Events and Entry Criteria” and “The Regatta Rules” in addition to the following information. Please contact the Entries Secretary for help in deciding which event to enter.
Rowing Ireland crews should contact the Entries Secretary for guidance.
Training prior to the Regatta
The Venue is not available until Wednesday before the regatta, and then only partially available until Friday morning, as much of the site is still under construction on Thursday. Therefore crews should have trestles available in the trailer park if necessary. Boats should only be placed on racks designated for each boat type.
For crews arriving before 9am Wednesday
Crews should make arrangements with one of the local clubs to boat from that club. Some clubs do charge for this. For boating availability, see the Upper Thames website for contact details email the Henley Rowing Club secretary at email@example.com.
Overseas crews should note that they are advised to move boats to the Regatta Enclosure after 9am Wednesday 19th June to save costs. In addition, all crews are required to boat from the Regatta Enclosure during the regatta.
Lifejackets for Coxes
HWR is run under British Rowing rules, which do differ from FISA rules. The wearing of a life jacket is compulsory for coxes. The Regatta is not able to supply lifejackets.
