Henley Royal Regatta

#1
Morning chaps & chapesses,

Has anyone here been to Henley Royal Regatta? I'm certain I've rowed there with my old school ages ago, but I was just a sprightly 14 year old schoolboy at the time & I can't really remember the finer details, other than chatting to one gallant young lad who was so posh I thought he was a bummer. 8O I haven't been there socially as it was a bit far from my former place of residence, but now I live a little closer I thought I'd venture out & have a look.

Ergo I require the following details:

Dress code: I understand it's all a bit highbrow with the supertoffs, I suppose blazers & trousers are the norm, but would a waistcoat be overdoing it? Do people still remain in Edwardian dress up until the late evening? I hear 07 was a washout, am I likely to ruin my highly polished shoes in this weather?

Location: Where's the best viewing platform & area in order to ascertain a fair assessment of the posh totty? :) I hear there's quite a few different bars.

Beverage: Where's the best place to drink? If I do get a little bored with the Pimms/lemonade/champers scene would it be a little undignified to order wife beater or spirits?

Food: If I can't entice some millionaires daughter into buying me lunch in the more exclusive stands where would be a more suitable place for tea & tiffin :?


I remain ever your most faithful, &tc.

Blazers it is - whether college pattern or naval. Absolutely no waistcoats. Ties or cravat is the norm but the open collar is accectable. Shoes: black oxfords, summer whites, loafers/boaters and espadrilles are all acceptable. Slacks or flannels to taste. 'Captain's hat' or college cap de rigeur. Panama hat optional. This years comedy theme is a squirty flower - available from most joke shops.

Stand B6

The main beer tent (Tent 16). Under no circumstances order Stella. You may as well wear a Norgie and Ron Hills.

Food: If I can't entice some millionaires daughter into buying me lunch in the more exclusive stands where would be a more suitable place for tea & tiffin :?

Roul's Hog Roast (Tent 13). £8.99 of pure heart attack. Lovely.

I have, of course, no idea whatsoever.
