GLORIOUS sunshine and multiple victories for home town clubs helped to make the 175th Henley Royal Regatta a huge success.
About 85,000 people bought tickets for the five-day event and tens of thousands more had picnics and watched the racing from the banks of the Thames.
Upper Thames Rowing Club claimed two titles during Sunday’s finals, the first time the Henley club has won at the regatta since it was founded more than 50 years ago.
The achievements earned the club the biggest cheers from the crowd during the presentation ceremony later in the day.
Leander Club athletes notched up six victories, including winning the Prince of Wales Cup for the fifth year in a row.
