Rowing in the UK

British Rowing is the governing body for rowing. Rowing in Scotland and Wales is governed and organized nationally by Scottish Rowing and Welsh Rowing, but when representing Great Britain’s interest to the international rowing federation, FISA, British Rowing is the umbrella organization. Today, 55,000 people in the UK participate in rowing at least once a week. More than 300 British Rowing events and activities take place each year. There are over 520 British Rowing clubs in the UK catering for all ages and abilities at the same time as offering many different types of rowing.

About Henley-on-Thames

Henley is a world renowned centre for rowing. Each summer Henley Royal Regatta is held on "Henley Reach", a stretch of the river that is naturally straight, although it was later extended artificially. The event became Royal in 1851. In that year Prince Albert became the patron of the regatta. Other regattas and rowing races are held on the same reach, including: Henley Women's Regatta, the Henley Boat Races for women's and lightweight teams between Oxford and Cambridge University, Henley Town and Visitors Regatta, Henley Veteran Regatta, Upper Thames Small Boats Head, Henley Fours and Eights Head, and Henley Sculls. These heads often attract strong crews that have won medals at National Championships.
