Selkie Henley Classic

Henley-on-Thames, Oxon

Organiser's Description

A 2.1k upstream River Thames swim, held over the Henley Royal Regatta course very early on the Sunday morning before the Wednesday start of the Regatta. This event is a celebration of mid-summer. It provides a unique opportunity to swim one of the most famous and beautiful stretches of open water in the World, at the most stunning time of the day - dawn.

Swimmers return year-after-year for this slightly bonkers event, and with everyone out of the water by 6.30am you can still have breakfast and be home by the time the rest of your household is waking up! Try the Classic at least once, and chances are you'll be hooked.
