Henley Royal Regatta
The 2019 Henley Royal Regatta broke records again this year with 660 entries, an increase of almost 100 on the benchmark set in 2018, with 159 overseas crews representing 17 nations, around 1900 athletes.
Multiple New Zealand clubs and athletes will compete at the regatta 3-7 July, including Rowing NZ elite athletes and the New Zealand Defence Force King’s Cup crew.
The King’s Cup commemorates the Centenary of the 1919 Royal Henley Peace Regatta. Crews from the original six nations of Australia, Canada, France, New Zealand, the UK and the USA, will be joined by Germany and the Netherlands, to compete in a knock-out format over the final three days of the 2019 Regatta.
In 2018 Mahé Drysdale equaled Stuart Mackenzie’s record in the Diamond Challenge Sculls (six-time winners) and will be vying for a record seven wins, and will compete in both the Diamond Challenge Sculls and the Grand Challenge Cup.
