HWR 2021: From Lockdown To Countdown

The 2021 Henley Women’s Regatta should be on the start in less than four months.

18 March 2021

Henley Women’s Regatta released the following statement on 17 March. Tim Koch added pictures.

Following consultation with British Rowing, which is coordinating the rowing competition calendar, we are pleased to confirm that Henley Women’s Regatta has been rescheduled to 2nd-4th July 2021. 

Good news!

Running Henley Women’s Regatta on these dates is still completely dependent on the government’s road map out of lockdown following the current schedule. This would see the move to Step 4 on 21st June when social distancing restrictions are planned to be eased. It is also dependent on the Return to Rowing guidance on competitions.  

We will now start to work with our multiple stakeholders to determine the size and scale of competition we are able to stage on the Henley stretch at the start of July. 

HWR 2021 is on course.

Please put these new dates in your calendar; we look forward to some excellent racing this summer.  

Miriam Luke, Chairman, HWR
