HRR: Henley Royal Regatta

Get ready for a fancy weekend celebrating Henley Royal Regatta on July 4th and 5th!  

Daytime Viewing of Henley Royal Regatta

During the day we will watch the rowing, enjoy a nice lunch and have some Pimm's!  Current Princeton Rowers and Alums generally tend to race at Henley so we can cheer them on!  

Viewing Options: The group will spend most of its time in Phyllis Court Enclosure, cost is 18GBP, (payment on registration). Phyllis will have drinks, seating, shade, and a view over the Finish Line.  
It is strongly encouraged to buy Phyllis Tickets rather than personal Steward's Ticket or free seating.  Alternatively you may:
  1. Buy personal Steward's tickets (200GBP/person).  You will not be able to use your phone in Steward's and you must adhere strictly to the dress code with Men in blazers and ties at all times. The Group at Phyllis will have four to five free Steward's tickets floating around at all times that you can make use of to peek into Steward's briefly.  
  2. Sit freely along the banks of the river. You will need to bring your own blanket or chair, food and drink, and shade.  Porta-potties available, shade not available.  There will be many people at Henley and you may need to walk for 40 minutes to find a bankside area

Evening Activities: 
July 4th: Black Tie Dinner in London at The Caledonian Club at 7:30pm with the Princeton Club of NY. Registration and details here.  Highly Encouraged.

July 5th: Group Dinner in Henley at Angel on the Bridge at 5pm.  Registration and details here.  Highly Encouraged.
Afterwards we will head back to the racecourse as it turns into a lively party with all the big London clubs setting up tents. Think of it like a much classier reunions!  Please note that you must be 18+ to attend HRR at night.
