Public (open to all)

Support your favourite Lightweight crew. The 2018 event will see the 44th contest between the men's crews and the 35th between the women, taking place over the 2,000m course. Henley usually also hosts races between the leading College crews from the Oxford Torpids and the Cambridge Lent Bumps, competing over a shorter distance of 1,750m, but as the event will be held at Dorney Lake this year, the HBR have had to cancel the planned alumnae and intercollegiate races.
