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 next Learn to Row course starts on 8th July and comprises 10 sessions on Wednesday evenings and Saturday afternoons - course full!   Email us to go on the waiting list or book now for September

Beginners Course Regatta 16th May
Lots of fun was had at the final session of our beginners course.  We had a "round robin" race with 4 crews.  Everybody won at least one round, and the final race was a dead heat!  Here are some photos in Dropbox, courtesy of David Gaylard (Weybridge RC)

Tulip Tour
19 Weyfarers had a great time in Holland on 24/25 April.  We had a day rowing round the canals in the centre of Leiden in glorious sunshine on Saturday, followed by 30 km through the famous bulb fields of Keukenhof on Sunday (in not quite so glorious weather).  A big thank you to Nigel who did all the organising, Glenn who shared the driving, and of course our lovely hosts at RV Rijnland in Leiden and KRV Het Spaarne in Haarlem.
Head of the Dart
Four Weyfarers crews headed down to Devon for the Head of the Dart on Saturday 11th April.  Roy, Gareth, Joan and Carole, coxed by Ian, won their category in an impressive time of 58 mins 48 secs.  Our friends from Weybridge RC (Judy, Kathy, Cath and Merryn, coxed by Maddie) also won their Women's Masters 4x+ category (NB. Kathy and Merryn started with Weyfarers!).  Full details here

Hide Awey
The new roof is in place, so hopefully no more leaks!
The blade rack is nearly finished, but is sagging a bit under the weight of the blades, so will need to be reinforced before the rest of them are loaded.
We have been awarded a grant by Elmbridge BC for installation of new toilet facilities.  Work will start in June.
