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.

The next Learn to Row course starts on 15th April and comprises 10 sessions on Wednesday evenings and Saturday afternoons.  April course full -  book now for July.

This week's outings

The beginners course continues this Wednesday evening and Saturday afternoon.
A contingent of Weyfarers is taking part in the Tulip Tour in Holland this weekend, using boats borrowed from a Dutch club.
A reminder that bow persons MUST wear a hi-viz jacket for safety reasons.  The majority of rowing incidents are caused by people not looking where they are going or not being visible.  We have an excellent safety record, so let's maintain it!
