About Henley Royal Regatta

 

The iconic river of Thames hosts the annual rowing event Henley Royal Regatta by the town of Henley-on-Thames. The event got its name from the town itself and is otherwise known as Henley Regatta. It is indeed a very popular sporting event in the UK scenario.

The Regatta had a humble beginning in the year 1839. But with the smooth passage of time, it saw its unprecedented growth to become an integral part of the history of Thames river. Now, it is a major show and a leading crow puller. Both locals and travelers come in thousands to be a part of the excitement.

Henley Royal Regatta has always been raced over a distance of about one mile and 550 yards from the Temple Island upstream towards the Henley Bridge.Each event in the regatta is under taken in the form of a knockout competition. The course is wide enough to allow two crews to race down with a few metres between them. The race begins at the downstream end of Temple Island, where the crews attach to a pair of pontoons. As a traveler spectator, you can view the race from a number of locations along both banks of the Thames. A channel of the river remains open throughout the regatta, hence racing can also be viewed from boats. This would give you a very rare feel.
