My Fabulous Henley Regatta Win

Henley Regatta





Wednesday 12 July 2013  and my daughter Katrina and myself were sitting on the banks of the Thames enjoying the Henley Regatta. What a beautiful evening it was too, everyone was dressed up, champagne was flowing and The Beach Boys were preparing to go on stage.  I won VIP tickets with Lavazza Coffee via a twitter competition. You had to say what your best coffee moment was. As I was watching Andy Murray on Centre Court at the time that it what I said. Luckily for me they liked it and so off we went for a wonderful evening.


Fun and celeb spotting were part of the evening entertainment and Cilla Black took her seat just behind us once the concert started. Master chefs doted the grounds and we all bopped to `Surfing USA`.


Fireworks lit up the sky at the end of the concert then it was off to dance at the disco until the early hours. A fabulous night and we were so lucky with the weather.





Aren`t they tall! the sails of the ships represented by these brave ladies.


Horsing around with Katrina.



If you get the chance do go to see this event, see tiny rowing boats and large passenger boats join the yachts and barges to make the whole Thames heave with glamour and laughter. It was quite a sight to see so many 


boats!

It looks like you had an awesome time! We were there on the Sunday during the day, but not quite such a VIP experience as yours. Love the sail ladies!
