The Henley Regatta is raced over five British summer days, in a series of mile long paddling sprints contested by international teams, who will probably be enjoying both the history and charm of the event, and probably also appreciating the chic style surrounding it - think nice dresses and champagne glasses.

Each event in the regatta takes the form of a knockout competition, with each race consisting of two crews racing side by side up the Henley course. While stewards say they don't rank the crews coming into the event, the really exciting pairings always seem to happen towards the end of the event.
