Henley of course is not all about the rowing and our base at The Leander Club was the perfect spot for lunch plus views of the river. Henley itself could not have looked more splendid basking in the hot July sunshine. Access to The Steward’s Enclosure situated opposite the finishing line offered perfect views of the rowing and for only the second time in its history gentlemen were allowed to remove their jackets as the afternoon temperature reached 33 degrees.
The rowing lived up to the hype with old and new Olympians encouraging the up and coming talent and cheering on the third largest entry ever. As always with an event like rowing the team spirit was truly unique which is uplifting and an important reminder to us all.
