True Sport Lives Here
Since 2004, the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta has committed to the principals of True Sport and maintains our declaration to understanding the important role that sport plays in the lives of Canadians, and globally. Our desire is to uphold a model of sporting competition that reflects positive values like fairness, excellence, inclusion, and fun.
