A day at Henley Royal Regatta

Extravagant striped blazers, riverside rowing & Pimms flowing. Nothing fits the definition of a “Summer Party” more than spending the day watching the worlds most prestigious rowing races from the Stewards Enclosure at Henley Royal Regatta. Across 5 days in the quaint town of Henley – on – Thames those who share a passion for rowing gather to watch crews from around the world compete.

This year I had the pleasure to attend my colleges for our company summer event. (Yes, you heard it, summer corporate event at Henley Royal Regatta!). Following in tradition those who have been a member of a rowing club wear their unique blazers. These come in a variety of wild patterns and colours which truly fill the Henley atmosphere with energy and cheer. Whether you recognise someone’s club blazer, had a little too much Champagne in the sun or simply share a passion for rowing, before you know it you’ll be making new friends everywhere.

It was delightful to chat with the inspiring GB Olympic Rower Toby Garbett, and to catch up with old teammates and coaches. Thank you to AlfaPeople UK for a day at Henley for the most wonderful summer party. Thank you to everyone who I met at Henley who is now supporting and following our journey to row across the Atlantic.
