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 crew’s 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 HWR is a public event, so please come along with your family and friends to watch some fantastic women’s rowing from the riverbank.
