The Henley Royal Regatta is one of the most popular rowing events held in the UK. The event is held in the Thames River and gets its name because it is situated in the part of the river which runs through Henley-on-Thames.
The event used to be called the Henley Regatta before the Royal family took patronage of the event. The regatta is a five-day long sporting extravaganza which sees a host of races which are always head-to-head knock-out events. The course sees rowers travel over a distance of just over 1 mile. The most anticipated and prestigious races is the Grand Challenge Cup for Men’s Eights which attracts teams from outside the UK to take part.
