For your convenience, we have divided the Entries FAQs into three sections – see below.

If you have a question that is not covered in our FAQs, then please get in touch at entries@hrr.co.uk

What events are available?

The Regatta offers 26 different events, each named after the winner’s trophy: these are outlined at here.  You should carefully read the Qualification Rules to ensure you enter the appropriate event.  If you are then unsure about your crew’s eligibility, send an email to entries@hrr.co.uk in good time to get clarification.

How do I enter a crew for this year’s Regatta?

All entries are processed electronically: visit COMPETE for more information.  Entries from the UK must be made using the Regatta’s online entry system; non-UK entries are made using a downloadable pdf, and require validation by the relevant national rowing federation.  Entry fees should be paid online by credit card.  Entries open on Monday, 2 May 2022, and close at 14:00 UK time on Monday, 13 June 2022.

Will my crew have to qualify before the Regatta?

For events that are over-subscribed,qualifying races take place on Friday, 24 June 2022.  Typically these cover the Student, Club and Junior events, but all events are at risk of needing qualifying races, including overseas crews.  The list of crews required to qualify will be published on Sunday, 19 June.  To assist the Stewards in deciding who has to qualify, you should provide good data on your crew’s recent performance with your entry.

Which are the qualifying regattas for Henley Royal Regatta?

There are no competitions that we formally require potential competitors to attend, but we expect serious contenders to have raced at their main national head of the river races and regattas during the season.  To have a good prospect of avoiding the qualifying races, you should have raced and done well at these leading national competitions.

How can I check if my crew complies with the Rules for a particular event?

First read the Qualification and General Rules to understand the constraints on each event: this is particularly important for the club, student and junior events.  If you are still not sure, email your question(s) as soon as possible to entries@hrr.co.uk, and they will give a definitive answer.

How do I find accommodation during the Regatta?

The Regatta does not arrange accommodation for visiting crews, but once you have entered a crew you will have access to a list of homes in the Henley-on-Thames area that may be willing to help.  We advise you to make your entry and start enquiring about accommodation early, to avoid disappointment.

Can I rent a racing boat and/or oars for the Regatta?

The Regatta does not provide equipment directly, but we can put visiting crews in touch with UK clubs that may have suitable boats and oars available.  You should email your requirements as early as possible to boats@hrr.co.uk.

When can we start training on the Regatta Course?

The Regatta Boat Tent opens on Monday, 20 June 2022.  Please note that training on the Course before then is governed by normal navigation rules, and is severely restricted during Henley Women’s Regatta on 17-19 June 2022.  Unless you can make arrangements with a local club, visiting crews cannot start training on the Henley reach before 20 June.

How is the racing programme affected by the move to six days?

Slightly fewer races will run on the first 2-3 days of the Regatta, so the programme is under less pressure.  As a result, a number of events can expect to have a rest day during the Regatta.  The schedule for this will be decided after entries have closed in June, but a Provisional Racing Schedule is available to illustrate what is possible.

How do I access the Regatta site during racing?

Crews that are racing at the Regatta will be able to collect Competitor Badges from the Crew Enquiries Office in the Boat Tent Area, and those badges must be worn by all competitors and coaches only on the days of the Regatta.  Crews that fail to qualify will not receive such badges.  A very limited number of car-parking passes will be available for competing crews from the Crew Enquiries Office.  If you are staying in Henley-on-Thames during the Regatta, we strongly advise you to walk or cycle to and from the Regatta site.

How do I enter a crew for this year’s Regatta?

All entries are processed electronically: visit COMPETE for more information.  Entries from the UK must be made using the Regatta’s online entry system; non-UK entries are made using a downloadable pdf, and require validation by the relevant national rowing federation.  Entry fees should be paid online by credit card.  Entries open on Monday, 2 May 2022, and close at 14:00 UK time on Monday, 13 June 2022.

What happened to the blank entry forms the Regatta used to post to clubs?

The Regatta no longer mails out hard copy entry forms.  You make an entry either online (for UK-only crews) or using an online pdf (for non-UK crews).  Full details are on the Entries website at regattaentries.co.uk.

How do I set-up a user identity for online entries?

When you first visit the Entries website you will be directed to a registration page where you can set up a login id and password, which will then give you access to the main Entries site.

Can we have more than one online identity for our club?

We encourage clubs to minimise the number of officials allowed to make entries on behalf of a club, to ensure that crews racing at the Regatta are properly approved.  But we accept that coaches for different sections (e.g. Men’s, Women’s or Junior squads) will want to submit their entries separately.  We do not encourage several crews from the same club to submit their own entries independently.

Can I use the online entry system for a non-UK entry?

No, at present our online entry system can only be used by clubs based in the United Kingdom.  Entries from other nations require validation by their national federation, which at present cannot be done online.

How do I make a composite entry?

Composite entries from more than one club are accepted only for certain events.  Read the Qualification and General Rules for more details about the event(s) you are interested in.  Where a composite entry involves several clubs, the Regatta only recognises two such clubs in the entry’s name.  You should advise us with your entry which two club names you would like to be used.  For UK-only composite entries, complete a separate entry for each combination.  For non-UK composite entries, complete a separate pdf entry form. 

Do not add a composite entry into your single-club entries in the same online or pdf submission.

How do I enter a composite crew involving multiple clubs?

For UK-only entries, ONE of the clubs should complete the online entry in the normal way.  Include ALL the club names represented in the crew, and clearly indicate which crew member represents which club.  Pay the entry fee online, and then finalise the entry by providing the names of the authorising official from each club.  Those officials should then email entries@hrr.co.uk validating the entry on behalf of their club.

For (non-UK) overseas entries, complete the pdf overseas entry form in the normal way.  Print a copy of the front-page declaration and have an official from each club sign it to validate it on behalf of their club.  If you need more space for signatures, use the margins of the page.  Scan the fully-signed page and email it with the rest of your entry and proof of payment to your national federation.

How do I enter a composite crew from more than one country?

Complete the pdf overseas entry form in the normal way, and pay the entry fee online.  Then email the completed form, with proof of payment, to the national federations of each country involved.  They will complete the validation process and forward the completed entry to the Regatta Entries Office.  We need validation from every country involved in the entry, but it does not have to be on a single page.  Remember this can take several days to complete, so start the process early.

How do I enter more than one crew for the same event?

First check that the Regatta Rules (link) allow more than one entry from the same club in that event.  For UK-only entries, make each entry online in the usual way, clearly marking which crew is ‘A’, ‘B’, etc.

For non-UK entries list both crews on the pdf entry form, clearly marking which crew is ‘A’, ‘B’, etc.  Use another copy of the pdf entry form if you need more space to add crews.

We expect the strongest crew to be your ‘A’ crew, the next your ‘B’ crew and so on, and may change your designation in order to achieve this.

Do I have to make separate payments for each entry?

You can group several entries from the same club (or composite) into one online submission or overseas entry form and pay for all those entries in one online transaction.  You do not have to pay for each entry separately.

How do I get a receipt so I can recover the entry fees as expenses?

You will get an automatic payment confirmation and payment reference when you pay your entry fees online by credit card.  If that is not sufficient evidence of payment, send an email to entries@hrr.co.uk once you have submitted your entry, and they will issue a formal receipt.

What information do you need about a crew?

When you enter a crew for an event, we need to know the club name(s), and the initials and given name of each competitor in the boat, and their dates of birth.  For example, John Michael Smith would be shown as JM Smith (and not JMS Smith).  If you are not sure about these details for each person, check with them before you make the entry, to avoid confusion and delay later.We also want to know the recent racing history for the crew: where they have raced and the results they achieved.  This should include at least the last five results at leading competitions.  We do not need opinions on the crew’s potential.

How do we provide biographical information about crew members?

Once all entries are received and the List of Entries has been published, we will email each crew with a link to the online portal where they can add personal information about each crew member.  We do not routinely need this with the entry.

Will I get confirmation that my entry has been received?

UK clubs will receive an automated email when their entries have been completed and submitted online.  All clubs will receive an email acknowledgement once their entry has been received and checked by the Regatta Entries Office.  This will go to the main email address you provide with the entry, so please use an address that you can access easily.  For non-UK entries, this will also include details of the Overseas Competitors Badge Scheme, including the application form.  Once the List of Entries has been published, we send a further email requesting individual crew biographies for use in our broadcast coverage.

Thereafter, you should monitor the main Regatta website at hrr.co.uk to keep up to date with information about qualifying races, Regatta timetable, rules for training, etc.  We do not send any further email notifications.

How do I change my entry once it has been submitted?

Once you have paid for and submitted an online entry, or sent an overseas entry to entries@hrr.co.uk, you can no longer amend the entry yourself, so please try to make the entry as accurate as possible before submission.  Any changes to the crew line-up can be made by sending an email to entries@hrr.co.uk.  After the Close of Entries at 14:00 BST on Monday, 13 June 2022, any changes are subject to Substitution Rules 16 and 17 in the Qualification and General Rules.

How do I know if my crew has to qualify?

The list of crews required to qualify will be published on the Regatta website and displayed at the Crew Enquiries Office on Sunday evening, 19 June.  It is not emailed or posted to crews, so please monitor the website at this time.  The qualifying races take place during the afternoon and evening of Friday, 24 June.

When can we bring our boats to Henley and start training on the water?

The Regatta Boat Tent opens on Monday, 20 June 2022.  Note that training on the Course before then is governed by normal navigation rules, and is severely restricted during Henley Women’s Regatta on 17-19 June 2022.  Unless you can make arrangements with a local club, visiting crews cannot start training on the Henley Reach before 20 June.  On arrival please report to the Boat Tent Officials before you start unloading your trailer.

How do I request an early or late race during the Regatta?

If you have a genuine need to race early or late during the Regatta, email entries@hrr.co.uk as soon as possible explaining the reason for the request, and clearly stating the time constraints involved.  We will do our best to accommodate your request providing it is for a specific, genuine need such as an academic examination or unavoidable work commitment.  We will not accommodate a general preference to race early or late in the day, or to suit the needs of supporters.

Requests for races on Tuesday, 28 June need to be received by 12 noon on Saturday, 25 June 2022, before the Draw, as the race programme will be organised immediately afterwards.

Where do we get competitor badges and car-park labels?

Crews that are racing at the Regatta will be able to collect Competitor Badges from the Crew Enquiries Office in the Boat Tent Area, and those badges must be worn by all competitors and coaches only on the days of the Regatta.  Crews that fail to qualify will not receive such badges.  A very limited number of car-parking passes will be available for competing crews from the Crew Enquiries Office.

How do we get Guest Badges for supporters?

A limited number of overseas guest badges may be purchased by non-UK clubs crews racing at the Regatta, which give access to the Stewards’ Enclosure.   Details of prices and how to apply are sent with the entry acknowledgement email.

Supporters of UK clubs racing at the Regatta should speak to club members who are also Members of the Stewards’ Enclosure to obtain guest badges.

Anyone can purchase badges for the Regatta Enclosure, a more informal area at the downstream end of the Stewards’ Enclosure that offers a good view of the racing.  Such badges sell out quickly, and early application is recommended.

Do we have to dress up for the Prizegiving?

If you win your event, you should attend the Prizegiving Ceremony in the Stewards’ Enclosure after racing on the Sunday to collect your winner’s medals and receive the event trophy.  You will be given more details about the arrangements on the day.  Prizewinners should wear club blazers or similar Regatta dress: you should not attend in racing kit.

How do we arrange a rowpast during the Regatta to celebrate a special club anniversary?

We allow a limited number of crew boats to row up the Regatta Course during the Luncheon or Tea intervals during the Regatta, to mark a significant milestone for a club or crew.  Usually this is something like a club centenary, or the 50th anniversary of a crew winning an event at the Regatta.  This has become an increasingly-popular activity in recent years, and places are limited in order that it does not interfere with crews that want to practise for this year’s Regatta.

A request for a rowpast should be made as soon as possible – preferably a year or two in advance – by email to rowpasts@hrr.co.uk, explaining the purpose and importance of the anniversary.
