After the cancellation of Henley Royal Regatta yesterday, Henley Women’s Regatta decided to follow suit in these difficult and uncertain times.
The statement said:
“It is with great sadness that the HWR Executive is cancelling the regatta due to run on the 19th – 21st June 2020.
The committee is looking at what possible alternatives there might be in staging a form of the regatta later on in the year.
We want to support and encourage our competitors at this really difficult time for our sport, and provide an event that gives you something to aim for once restrictions have been lifted. We hope it will be possible to achieve this.”
