this may sound odd but i saw this date next to a picture of a 8 and the
implication that some sort of large event involving rowing was happening
in Henley.... i havent heard about this can any one point me in the
right direction to what it is.

"Just" the Henley Boat Races.

Info at:

I highly recommend going out.  Great atmosphere (and not just Oxbridge
types come out).  The course runs the reverse direction of the Royal
Regatta course, down the middle of the stream (in theory), finishing at
Temple Island.  The races mean a lot to the participants, can get
emotional, and in recent years there have been some excitingly close ones
so bring a bike.

Good luck to all crews.

That would be the Henley Boat races - Oxford vs Cambridge

1.30pm Nephthys vs Granta (Men's Lightweight Reserves)
2.00pm Osiris vs Blondie (Women's Heavyweight Reserves)
2.30pm OUWLRC vs CUWBC (Lt) (Women's Lighweights)
3.00pm OUWBC vs CUWBC (Women's Heavyweights)
3.30pn OULRC vs CULRC (Men's Lightweights)

The Men's Heavyweight races (aka 'The Boat Race') being the weekend afterwards,
on the Tideway.
