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 most 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 international level. Spectators are welcome to watch and enjoy the racing along the full length of the course – no tickets required!

Support HWR

HWR is a unique event where our competitors and spectators come first. The regatta has run every year since 1988 except 2020, with the help, support, commitment and hard work of a huge team of volunteers, the generosity of the Copas family, our Friends of Henley Women’s Regatta and goodwill of a few sponsors, local businesses and supporters. HWR were proud to be at the forefront and the early adopter of providing a live stream of our racing, but as costs of this provision increases along with increasing general running costs, we would be grateful for any donations.
