Tim Koch writes from Henley,
Wednesday, 3 July saw first round races in the Thames (M8+) and Wyfolds (M4-) in men’s club events, in the Temple (M8+) and Prince Albert (M4-) in men’s student events and in the Princess Elizabeth (JM8+) and Fawley (JM4x) in junior men’s events. The results are here.
Thursday, 4 July will see six more events having their first round. Wherever you are you can listen to stroke by stroke commentary (and much more) on Regatta Radio. This is a pop up radio station for Henley Royal Regatta broadcasting for ten days from the qualifying races and the draw through to the prize giving. Starting eight years ago with a man up a tree holding a mobile telephone, it now broadcasts on 87.7FM within an eight-mile radius. It can be picked up on the Regatta Radio ear-piece receivers (which are allowed in the Stewards’ Enclosure), on a live internet stream on the website and on smart phones via iPhone and Android apps. Pick your preferred method, pour yourself a Pimm’s and pretend that you are there (no jeans or short skirts please).
