Henley Royal Regatta

The Henley Royal Regatta has been cancelled for 2020. Organisers explained: “With much sadness and regret, the Committee of Management of Henley Royal Regatta has agreed that the 2020 Regatta must be cancelled.

“We have also ruled out the possibility of staging the Regatta at a future date this year.

“It has weighed heavily on the Committee of Management that in its 181 year history, the Regatta has only previously been cancelled during the World Wars.

“Also that so many athletes and coaches have worked so hard for an entire season in order to give themselves the chance to race at Henley.

“Nonetheless, we are agreed that this is the right decision for our staff, members, volunteers, competitors, spectators, partners and Stewards.”
