Originally an invitation-only 'Veterans' event, the Henley Lunch is now open to all club members and the invitation is extended to ex–members and their friends who are also welcome with or without partners.
As the name suggests the lunch takes place in Henley, at Leander Club, with drinks and canapés in the bar beforehand and for the more adventurous, the now legendary Chairman's Waddle down the river to the Flowerpot Public House afterwards (weather permitting).
Between the two is a chance for many of older members to tell you about the 'good old days', some fine dining and a few speeches make for a great afternoon out – and another chance to show-off your expensive club blazer.
This event usually takes place in the second half of October and is highly recommended. The date of the next Henley lunch is posted in the social calendar, newsletters and Captain's log.
