Racing at Henley Royal Regatta

Amendments to the Rules of Racing for 2017

Weighing of Coxswains

For reasons of welfare and in line with the recent amendments to FISA rules, all coxswains competing at the 2017 Regatta shall carry a minimum weight of 55kg. (8st. 9lb.). To make up this minimum weight, a coxswain shall be required to carry deadweight throughout the race, which shall be placed in the boat as close as possible to the coxswain.

Racing Intervals

In anticipation of a large number of high-quality entries for the 2017 Regatta, it has been decided to continue to race at five-minute race intervals until the Tea interval on Friday 30th June.
