THE LARGEST REGATTA FOR WOMEN IN THE UK
THE HENLEY WOMEN’S REGATTA IS NOW THE LARGEST REGATTA FOR WOMEN IN THE UK AND 2ND LARGEST IN THE WORLD.
It attracts over a thousand competitive women to Temple Island Meadows every year along with spectators and the crews friends and families. It’s a family friendly event that offers wonderful food, a licensed bar and rides aboard the majestic umpire launches.
Crews come from all over the world and its international reputation has meant it has grown significantly since it first started in 1988, when Tom Copas first offered Temple Island Meadows, Remenham Farm as their venue.
With stunning views of the River Thames, ample parking and superb access to the river, the HWR (Henley Women’s Regatta) jumped at the chance and so The Regatta began.
The Event provides a fantastic atmosphere for the women rowing and is a friendly relaxed event allowing for brilliant results. The event is a public event so please come along with your family and friends to watch some fantastic Women’s rowing from the riverbank.

HWR STREET FOOD VILLAGE
2018 ANNOUNCED !!
Hippo Catering – www.hippocatering.co.uk
When we’re not being all deliciously formal, the Hippo team roam the UK serving up juicy Natural Wagyu Beef Burgers, with lashings of freshly cooked fries! We only use Organic, grass-fed Wagyu Cows bred especially in North Pembrokeshire. Unlike our Japanese counterparts, they’re 100% teetotal and if you try and give them a relaxing massage, they’ll probably tell you to Wagyu off. No, we haven’t lost our marbles… and neither have our cows. Due to its intense marbling (the fat deposited between muscle fibres), Wagyu meat is prized the world over for its rich flavour and buttery tenderness.
Francas Ice Cream – francasicecream.co.uk
Francas Ice Cream is a family run business owned by Pino and Felice Battista established over 30 years ago, by their mother Franca. The team are passionate about ice creams and pride themselves in friendly service and have been serving Ice Cream at the Henley Women’s Regatta for more than 20 years. You will see the familiar Francas van amongst the new street food trader this year, so don’t forget to stop by for a Mr Whippy with a flake of course.
