2020 REGATTA CANCELLATION – STATEMENT ON CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
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.
We have taken this decision after much deliberation, and after as thorough an evaluation that we and the Regatta staff have been able to conduct since the COVID-19 outbreak started to have an impact on normal life. In so doing we have considered a number of factors, including the following:
Latest Government guidance, in particular stricter travel restrictions, and social distancing requirements, and the withdrawal of emergency services support for mass gatherings;
Modelling evidence as to the likely development of COVID-19 in the UK, notably the research conducted by Dr. Neil Ferguson and his team at Imperial College being relied upon by Government scientists;
Our operational options and their implications, both practical and financial.
Our highest concerns have been the health and safety of all those involved in the staging and running of the Regatta, as well as wider public health and the Regatta’s role in society’s efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19.1st Jul – 5th Jul 2020 HenleyLimited Availability
2021 Fawley Court Henley Royal Regatta
Henley Royal Regatta has been a firm fixture of the summer sporting and social calendar since 1839. Over 200 races take place across the 5-day event with Olympians and international crews racing for victory. Situated in the picturesque and historic market town of Henley-on-Thames, guests visiting for the Regatta enjoy views of the River Thames and the delightful surroundings of the Chiltern Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A more quintessentially English setting is difficult to imagine.
Owing to its fantastic location and rich heritage, Henley Royal Regatta has become an internationally renowned example of British high society. However, by no means underestimate the seriousness and centrality of rowing at this exclusive sporting event. The races are in a head-to-head format and consequently are started every five minutes to accommodate the large number of competing teams. You can expect constant excitement, with the thrill of competition in the air between the world’s best crews.29th Jun – 4th Jul 2021 HenleyLimited Availability
