SIR Matthew Pinsent will be signing copies of a new book in Henley next Saturday (December 7) to celebrate 175 years of the royal regatta.
He will be at regatta headquarters, next to Henley Bridge, from 10am to noon, when visitors can buy copies of Henley Royal Regatta: A Celebration In Photographs.
The retired rower, who won gold medals at four successive Olympic Games, compiled the visual record based chiefly on the Getty Images? archive.
Many of the pictures have never been seen before. They are supplemented by images from the royal regatta archive and contemporary illustrations provided by photographer James Finlay.
The book, which is published by Phillimore, costs £50.
