The organising committee of the Henley Boat Races has made the decision to move this year’s event to Dorney Lake.
In view of the strong stream conditions at Henley and the forecast direction and strength of wind for race day, Sunday 24th March, it was deemed unlikely that conditions will improve sufficiently by the weekend for a safe event to take place. Since the safety of the athletes and spectators is the strongest priority to the organising committee, the relocation is a necessary change.
The race programme and schedule will remain the same, and parking and other facilities will be available to the public at Dorney Lake. Full details on transport and facilities will be posted on the Henley Boat Races website shortly.
The organising committee look forward to welcoming you to the new venue on Sunday.
