Crowds for Henley Royal Regatta draw
Published 30/06/14



HENLEY Town Hall was filled with rowers on Saturday as the draw for the Henley Royal Regatta was made.

Competitors from as far away as USA and New Zealand have come to the town for the annual event and the hall was packed as they waited to find out who they would be facing.

Regatta chairman Mike Sweeney drew names from the Grand Challenge Cup for each of the 20 events at the regatta, which were then displayed on a giant screen inside the hall.

The selected crews were drawn first for each event in order to keep them apart, before the rest of the crews were drawn.


The draw drew such interest that rowers queued out of the doors and even sat on the floor around the stage as they waited for their name to be read out.


The draw in full can be seen here
