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. 

Our autumn Learn to Row course starts on 7th September 2016 and comprises 10 sessions - the introduction on Wednesday evening and then on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.  COURSE FULL!! Book now to reserve a place for the next course in April 2017.

Our address:

Thames Lock
Jessamy Road
KT13 8L
