The world's top rowing clubs have been gathering at Henley-on-Thames to participate in the five-day Henley Royal Regatta since March 1839. This annual event is one of the premier regattas in all of Europe, bringing together rowing teams, Olympians, and international socialites for an event like no other. As always, DTB will be there to bring our client's the finest rowing hospitality for 2016.
What makes the Henley Regatta so special? There are lots of reasons, beginning with the fact that it has been held annually for more than 185 years. The age of this event is such that it pre-dates any recognised national or international rowing organisation, which, as it turns out, adds even more to its unique nature. The Henley Regatta has its own governing rules even though it is recognised by both the British Rowing Association and the International Federation of Rowing Associations.
The viewing areas along the Thames are also unique. Local officials do a remarkable job at keeping things looking pristine throughout the year, just so that the three regattas staged here are as special as they can be. As soon as the Henley Royal Regatta has concluded, crews will immediately break down the stands and store them away so as to return the area to its best condition.
Rowing Hospitality Packages
For 2016, DTB is offering ten different rowing hospitality packages for the Henley Regatta. The event this year begins June 29 and runs through until July 3. If you have never been before, you are in for a treat. The Regatta features daily head-to-head races over a Thames course running for 1 mile 550 yards. The races are run in a knockout format, which continually reduces the field to the final two teams, that will then race for the prize.
We invite you to join us for all five days of this incredible regatta. You and your guests will be treated to outstanding rowing hospitality that includes event tickets, gourmet food, drinks, and the legendary Pimms that has become synonymous with the regatta.
