Henley Royal Regatta
Wed 28th June - Sun 2nd July
The historic, famous and prestigious international regatta for men's crews on the River Thames in Oxfordshire
College crews usually enter the 'Temple Cup' - a competition for student VIIIs. Although nowadays it is most unlikely that a College will win an event, clubs aspire to race and perhaps win a round or two past the famous enclosures. The top 2 or 3 Mays crews are often invited to attend, whilst others must earn a place in the qualifying race.
