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.....

Never rowed before? No problem! We run learn to row courses in the Spring, Summer and Autumn.  The dates of our 2015 courses are now available.

Our address:

Jessamy Road

Recent events
20th September - Great Tyne Row.  Two Weyfarers crews survived the wild and windy conditions on the Tyne.   The event had to be stopped before the end due to a container ship crossing the river, so the timings are irrelevant, and most participants were just happy to reach the end!   The verdict:  a bit too exciting!

27th September - Great River Race.  Our crew, in a big heavy boat, won their category!  Congratulations!
British Rowing National Tour
18 Weyfarers took part in the national tour on the River Severn from 28th - 31st August.  The weather was kind and everyone had a great time.  Many thanks to Upton Rowing Club for their superb organisation.  Photos here

Thanks to the sterling efforts of Judith, David A, Diane and Lynne, our clubhouse (we will no longer call it "the Hut") now looks BEAUTIFUL!  It has been completely redecorated inside and out, though we're not sure who chose the paint in the conservatory...... 
 Next steps:
1.   Build the new blade rack
2.   Re-roof the back half, including the blade rack
3.   Sort out the drains
