Rowing Club

Welcome to Weyfarers
Leaders in recreational and touring rowing

Weyfarers is the recreational arm of Weybridge Rowing Club. We are one of just a handful of recreational and touring rowing clubs in the UK, formed for and by people who think rowing should be FUN!

  • No time to train 8 days a week?
  • Love rowing, but want to have a life as well?
  • Never tried rowing, but want to have a go?

Then maybe YOU should try recreational rowing!!

Don't get us wrong - we don't just paddle around. We aim to improve our technique and get fit, just like our more competitive friends. But our horizons are wider..... 

Take a look at our Photos page to see what we've been up to recently

This week's outings w/c11th September

Evening outings continue this week, but carry lights on the boats as the evenings are drawing in.

The Autumn Wey 2 Row course is in progress, with sessions on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.  More volunteers are needed to help, so let Roy know if you are available.  

Touring
14 rowers from Broxbourne, Lea and Trondheim (Norway) joined us for a day row to Staines, with lunch at the Swan.

Twelve Weyfarers took part in The Great Coal Row (Southampton) over the weekend of  27th - 29th May, organised by Southampton Coalporters Rowing Club.  Information here.  Photos will be posted as soon as I receive them.

Five Weyfarers took part in the Voga Longa in Venice on 4th June.   Thanks to our friends at Ruderclub Neuss in Luzern, Switzerland, who provided them with seats in their boats.
Social Events
Quiz Night - Saturday 30th September.
Wine tasting - date TBA
Annual Dinner Dance on Saturday 25th November at the Brooklands Hotel. 
Racing (though of course we are not a racing club!)
Two Weyfarers crews took part in the Great Tyne Row on 2nd September.  Alasdair's crew, comprising Steve, Brian, Lisa and Kate, came third overall, jointly winning the prize for the fastest mixed crew in exactly the same time as the Weybridge mixed crew - who of course are true racing rowers and on average 30 years younger!

Our Great River Race crew (Roy, Kim, Paul Sermon, David S, Sarah and Annette, coxed by Alasdair with the Mayor of Spelthorne as passenger)  in a fixed-seat Thames Cutter, achieved an impressive time of 2 hours 49 minutes and 45 seconds.  PHotos here (courtesy of Kim)
