On Sunday 5th July almost 60 members and their guests visited the Henley Royal Regatta, repeating a very successful previous Club visit to the event in 2012.
It was a wonderful way to spend a quintessential summer’s day – amongst fellow members and friends, enjoying some of the event’s finest hospitality in the Temple Island Enclosure, just moments from the start of the racing and right at the heart of the action.
The private Farmers Club enclosure, right beside the course, had rowing passing by just meters away, with drinks flowing throughout the day and everyone relaxing in the lovely riverside chalet and garden.
The programme started with arrival at Temple Island Enclosure in time for morning coffee – ideally timed for the 36 members and guests who had travelled by organised coach from The Club in London. A pre-lunch Champagne reception followed, before a four-course sit-down luncheon. A one and a half hour river cruise along the Regatta course was included, before afternoon tea was served.
All in all the day was a great success, with lovely food and a wonderful atmosphere, reflects event organiser Lisbeth Rune.
