Upper Thames Rowing Club was founded in 1963. It occupies the site of the old Henley Regatta “boom sheds” on the famous Henley stretch of the Thames, just over 500m from the Regatta finish line. The club and its members have a proud history of high level competitive achievement and a relaxed and friendly atmosphere that focuses on rowing over everything else .
Most recently the club achieved a double win at Henley Royal Regatta in 2014, winning both the Wyfold and Brittania Challenge Cups in the same morning.
The club welcomes athletes of all levels and ages, particularly those with a high degree of self-motivation and self-management. UTRC tends to be comprised of people who can help themselves!
