Upper Thames organises two major events on the Henley stretch of the Thames:

Henley Masters Regatta

Henley Masters Regatta (previously known as Henley Veterans Regatta) has been held on the weekend following Henley Royal Regatta since 1994. Hosted at Upper Thames Rowing Club, the Regatta has grown into an internationally recognised event for veterans or masters crews. Competitors come from all over the world to compete in the racing which takes place over 1000m of the Royal Regatta course.

All coxes must wear a buoyancy aid.
