The King’s Cup is a knock out race with eight crews racing at Henley Royal Regatta on the Friday, four on the Saturday and two on the Sunday.

The King’s Cup crews have their competitor badges and all will race in the Qualifying Race on Friday 28th June and in private matches before the Henley Royal Regatta.

The draw will be made at Henley Town Hall on Saturday 29th June by the Chairman of the Committee of Management, Sir Steve Redgrave CBE.

The first round for The King’s Cup will be signalled by bugles on Friday 5th July.

At lunch time on Sunday 7th July the six crews not in the final will row the Henley Royal Regatta course.

At 15:00 on Sunday 7th July two national military crews will race.

Less than seven minutes later one crew will have won The King’s Cup 2019.

Two hours later that crew will be presented with their King’s Cup medals.

Presentation and medal ceremonies will then take place in each nation in the following months.
