Today is the start of the five day event, the Henley Royal Regatta. This is a rowing event that occurs on the River Thames . The entire course is a little over 2,000 metres and is a head to head competition. Two crews of rowers compete with one advancing and the loser eliminated. Each team qualifies first to make sure the event is filled with the finest rowers across England. Of you are going to attend the event, this is the perfect time to bring your sky lanterns to launch in support of your favourite rowing team. For those at home following the results of the races, you can launch sky lanterns at home in support of your favourite rowing team.

Personalise your Chinese Hanging Lanterns to support your favourite rowing team

In ancient times Chinese lanterns were used to send prayers and well wished up to the sky so the gods could better hear them. Today this tradition can be continued by using sky lanterns to send well wishes to your favourite rowing team. You can write the names of all the rowers in the crew or you can write a saying or prayer by using a sharpie marker. Children will really enjoy this part of the process. You can have them draw pictures of the rowers while you tell them the history of the Henley Royal Regatta and about rowing in general. You may even spark an interest for rowing in your kids. Using the Chinese Hanging Lanterns as craft projects or creative projects will get you started in the sky lantern fun.

Plan a Henley Royal Regatta party at home

Having a Henley Royal Regatta party is a great way to celebrate the event at home. You can have your own races in your back yard. If you have a pool you can hold some fun mini rowing races or water races. But even if you do not have a pool, you can pretend with some land races that are rowing themed. Just use your imagination. As with any party or get together sky lanterns are the perfect addition. Use the coloured sky lanterns found at for a slash of colour across the night sky. Lanterns are a great way to add a festive spirit to any gathering.

For those attending the sky lantern packages are the perfect addition

If you are lucky enough to personally attend the Henley Royal Regatta, you may want to choose the coloured lantern package of sky lanterns found at These packages give you an assortment of coloured Chinese Hanging Lanterns all in one convenient package. These are perfect for taking to festivals and launching in celebration of the winners of the event.

Sky lanterns are a great addition to any event both to celebrate and to send well wishes to your favourite rowers. For those who follow the regatta, wish your favourites good luck in placing and when they win celebrate in grand style by releasing sky lanterns in honour of the win.
