Welcome Henley Masters!  This year's competition will be held Sunday, August 5th 2018.

  • New 2018 - Womens Pair Events have been re-introduced: Event orders can be found in the List of Race Events  chapter;

  • Event Entry Caps: Each Masters event has an entry cap. The LOC reserves the right to massage each event's cap based on a maximum number of races available per each day of competition in accordance to Rule 2.1 as outlined in the Rules, Regulations & Policy Chapter. The Wait List Policy will be in effect;
  • Handicaps: Based on the generous feedback received on the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta's inclusion of a handicap system the Henley Commission has implemented a Henley Handicap System (HHS) as recommended by the Competition Committee. Utilizing the Garrett-Zezza System, there will be handicapping within multiple-age-category events. No handicapping will be applied within single-age-category events. When handicapping is being applied, each age category will have a specific handicap based on the median Garrett-Zezza handicap for that age category. Given the nature and specifics of handicapping, the Henley Commission and it's partners support that this the most fair distribution of handicapping; all athletes within the same age category receive the same handicap. You can download a copy of the Henley Handicap System (HHS) here;
  • Late Entries: see Entry, Refund, Wait List & Late Entry Policy;
