A day at Henley Regatta

We always enjoy spending our time in Henley, its a beautiful location on the river.   Today, we especially enjoyed our day in the Stewards enclosure at the Henley Royal Regatta.

First time I have worn boat shoes with a suit and Angie with high heels on the boat? 🙂

The first time we have been dressed in smarts for some time and those high heels (Angie’s :)) were not worn on board!

At the Regatta, there was some good close rowing races, some wonderful and some weird sights and overall, it was an enjoyable experience and another box ticked on our list.

Elvis was performing on a platform with an outboard motor on it and he was pretty good too!

Our friends Tracey and Shaun had secured a premium mooring right opposite the regatta for their beautiful Piper 60 barge, “Ascension”, so we popped up (excuse the pun) and shared a glass or two of prosecco with them which made the day even more enjoyable.

Finally, we returned to the Stewards enclosure and enjoyed afternoon tea along with hundreds of others, before retiring to the stern deck of Steel Away for a well deserved glass of vino.
