Candidates must have excellent organisational and communication skills and the ability to interface at all levels within the organisation as well as with contractors, the general public and other third parties. Strong literacy and numeracy skills are essential and candidates should be computer literate.

Stewards' Meeting December 2013 - The Club Events at Henley Royal Regatta

Stewards' Meeting December 2013 - The Club Events at Henley Royal Regatta

  1. The Club Events at Henley Royal Regatta
  2. The Diamond Jubilee Challenge Cup
  3. Committee of Management for 2014
  4. Election of Stewards

The Committee of Management has become increasingly aware of the trend for university and college students to train with their student clubs and to compete in student events during the academic year but then to transfer to a club in order to row in one of the three club events at the Regatta - The Thames, The Wyfold or The Britannia Challenge Cups.

The Committee has considered this trend and has determined that it is detrimental to the spirit and intentions of the three club events. If a student chooses to compete exclusively for a club throughout the year then he is an entirely appropriate member of his club’s crew for the Regatta. If, however, a student has trained and raced for his university or college at a high level in competitive events during the year then his appearance in a club crew will be deemed to be inappropriate. Clubs are reminded of General Rule 3:-

"The Committee shall have the power, at any time, to notify a club that an entry will not be accepted in certain events if the Committee considers such an entry to be inappropriate."

Should a club have any doubts as to the suitability of one or more potential crew members for The Thames, The Wyfold or The Britannia Challenge Cups then the Captain or Coach should contact George Hammond, the Steward in charge of entries, at the earliest possible date.
