This year’s Henley was another gorgeous day spent by the river, sipping fine drinks and being in great company.
I do feel lucky enough to be able to spend time inside the Stewards’ Enclosure because whilst the dress code may be exceptional, it is completely worth the effort to look for a dress that hangs below the knee. Why? Because you feel like you’re stepping back in time as soon as you walk through the gates and you feel like a true lady whilst the men appear so gentlemanly.
The Stewards is an area for rowing members to hang out in, with their friends and family. The atmosphere is so relaxed, as if it were a garden party.
Just like cricket, there are breaks for lunch and tea. In other words, a glass or few is definitely encouraged.
After all, this is a social event as much as sports tournament.
I also enjoy the picnics …
As much as I do, the rowing …
On Saturday, we also had the privilege to take a close look at the Gloriana.
And it was so much fun to be invited to the Leander Club. I am a huge fan of their mascot but I didn’t manage to find out why it is a pink hippo. So cute! If anyone knows, please feel free to leave a comment below.
With the races finished for the day, drinks and a barbecue at the Leander were a good way to carry on.
I’ve uploaded more photos onto my Facebook page, where you’ll see how slightly obsessed I became of the blazers.
As much as Chelsea is my home, I can’t deny that it is always fun to escape to the country. It’s so easy to unwind …
