Henley Regatta July Sporting Event

Ref. 0713E. Henley Royal Regatta Henley Regatta was first held in 1839 and has been held annually ever since, except during the two World Wars.

Originally staged by the Mayor and people of Henley as a public attraction with a fair and other amusements, the emphasis rapidly changed so that competitive amateur rowing became its main purpose.

Henley on Thames Royal RegattaThe 1839 Regatta took place on a single afternoon but proved so popular with oarsmen that the racing lasted for two days from 1840.

In 1886 the Regatta was extended to three days and to four in 1906.

Since 1928 its increased popularity meant entries exceeded the permitted numbers in several events, and so qualifying races are now held in the week before the Regatta to reduce the number of entries to the permitted maximum.

In 1986 the Regatta was extended to five days, with an increase in the maximum entry for certain events.

The Regatta is a private tour just for you and your friends.
