We are very much looking forward to hosting our Friends at this summer’s regatta, but it will be in a different venue from the past few years.  The Chairman’s Enclosure in 2021 will be in the spectator area adjacent to the Barrier mark on the course.  It will consist of a large tent with white picket fence that will be familiar to those who were Friends before the move to Remenham Club in 2014.   

This year the support from our Friends is more important than ever in helping generate funds so we are able to put on one of the premier regattas of the racing calender. We really do appreciate your ongoing support and welcome new member to join the friends of Henley Women’s Regatta. 

We do have access to parking for our Friends this year, but space is limited – we will give priority to those with mobility issues and those who book early.  Refreshments will be available for purchase in the Enclosure. 

There will be dedicated toilet facilities available for use by our Friends.
