2020 regattas cancelled

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most of the regattas in the MBA Sailing series are not taking place in 2020. Therefore the Henley team will not be sailing together this year. We hope to be back up and running in 2021.

Global MBA Trophy 2019

The team enjoyed an excellent weekend of sailing in the Solent including a special ’round the island’ race. The event was held between 26th and 28th April 2019.

Very high winds meant that some of the sailing was reduced on the Saturday but overall a really enjoyable time.
