Become a Friend of HWR and have access to a number of exclusive benefits and secure the future of the Regatta for future generations.
As well as gaining you access to the Chairman’s Enclosure your contribution to the regatta could make a huge difference to competitors and spectators alike. Entry fees alone do not cover the cost of hosting this amazing event – becoming a Friend will mean you are helping the next generation of rowing superstars take shape.
After a different experience in 2021, we hope to return to normal in 2022, with the Chairman’s Enclosure, hosting the Friends, based in the finish area of the course, at Remenham Club. Standard Friends’ membership includes parking, which is conveniently adjacent to the spacious and well-appointed clubhouse, and the opportunity to pre-book lunches and/or afternoon teas from the club caterers.
Our rowers all appreciate the support that is provided by our Friends at the finish point of the racing and we encourage you to go onto the raised lawn overlooking the course where you can show your appreciation of the athletes’ endeavours.
And there will be live streaming of the racing adjacent to the clubhouse, so that you can watch what is going on further up the course, ready to sprint to the finish line as the rowers near the Enclosure. We will also ensure that regular updates on the results and draw are available.
The financial and passionate support from our Friends is very much appreciated by the Regatta and we have different Friend memberships to suit – please follow the links below, depending upon whether you are signing up for this year’s regatta (Annual Friend), a Life membership, an Under 23 badge, an Absent Friend or Additional guest (each Annual or Life member comes with provision for one guest on each day of the regatta so if you wish to bring along further guests on any particular day, you will need to purchase additional tickets – but please note that these are limited to two additional guests per Friend per day)
Annual Friend £100
