It’s Wayback Thursday? Yesterday would have been the start of the Henley Royal Regatta. For those who are relatively new to rowing, the Henley Regatta was first held in 1839 and the traditional length of the course is 1 mile 550 yards or 2,112 meters. You can always go back and check out our past Henley coverage or past galleries here. While Wayback Wednesday is typically a once a week feature, this week for the five days that would have hosted HRR 2020, we are going to share with you classic Henley photo from a time before row2k made their way to the Thames; photos provided by HRR.
