Those with trailers will find it easier to access via Remenham Church Lane off the A4130.
If you miss this turn then proceed down Remenham Hill and turn right at Remenham Lane as you pass the Cricket Club on your right. This lane has a tight left turn, then go past UTRC and a little further on you will see the Hillside car park. There is a tight turn into the car park and you may need some assistance with the manoeuvre.
For those new to this Regatta, please note the Berkshire bank of the river (Berks) is the side from which you will boat. The other bank is the Buckinghamshire bank (Bucks).
You must familiarise yourselves with the normal river rules which operate prior to the Regatta and outside of Regatta hours on Friday & Saturday.
Steerspersons / coxes must be especially careful below Temple Island (remember that during the regatta you must return to the normal (Berks) side of the river below Temple Island. During the racing timetable look out for the cross-over point.
Steerspersons / coxes should be aware that lone scullers from other clubs in Henley sometimes ignore the change over times for racing and normal operation. The best advice is to look around you often.
Crews are allowed on the water for practice on Friday morning but must be off the water by 8.30am and on Saturday by 7.30am. No practice is allowed during the racing timetable.
The start is at a point about 100 metres upstream of Temple Island.

Regatta trailer park in Hillside car park (above the main Regatta site)
does not open until midday Wednesday and the landing stages are only constructed
on Wednesday or sometimes Thursday morning. Hillside car park will close Sunday at 17:00 hours. Trailers can park free of charge.
In the past, the entry fee has always included a charge for parking but this has not been transparent. As last year there will be a separate charge for parking but at a reduced rate for Competitors £8.00 per day reduced to £3.00 upon production of a reduced rate parking pass.
Each club will be provided with reduced-rate parking passes for Competitors in line with their entries. Please collect passes from the Registration marquee when registering and return to the parking area for a refund of £5.00.
The Regatta relies upon the local landowner (Copas) for use of its facilities and fields for parking and boating. These facilities include clean toilets and generally keeping the boating area secure, clean and litter free for Competitors and spectators.
Copas need to ensure that the cost of providing these facilities at least breaks even and so they charge for parking. It is important for the Regatta to continue to make use of the Copas facilities for without them and their continued support the Regatta would be quite different. It is also important that the Regatta covers its costs and makes a small profit so that it can continue to maintain its high standards and improve.
