Introduced in the 1970s, it was only updated in 2021 to allow women to wear pants.

Those who fall short could be denied entry to the prestigious Stewards’ Enclosure.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Henley Royal Regatta and what to wear.

The 2022 event will see 419 racing crews from over 17 countries compete, with 26 races taking place over the six-day festival.

Looking back on this year’s tournament, he said in a statement: “The stewards of the Henley Royal Regatta are as excited about the start of this regatta as it seems for the rest of the sport of rowing.

“Once it was clear that we would be able to host an event of this magnitude, expectations grew.

“But the reaction from our national and international crews, our members and volunteers and everyone coming to support the event has still been stunning as I am sure the races will take place from Tuesday morning to Sunday afternoon.”
