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 in April 2016 and comprises 10 sessions - Wednesday evenings and Saturday afternoons for 5 weeks.  LATEST NEWS - the April course is already full!   Book now to reserve a place for July.

Recent rowing events
Our two crews performed creditably in the Hyne Cup (7th February) in near perfect conditions.  Results here
New Boats!
Our new singles have arrived!  We have just acquired two new Swift training single sculls (similar to our training doubles) so those of you who want to try single sculling but are too nervous to go out in a racing single now have no excuse!  Sign up for the Sunday 9 a.m. outing and have a go!
Hide Awey
The blade rack has been reinforced (thanks to John and Annette) and all our blades are now stored behind the hut. 
We are still waiting for permission from the Environment Agency to connect our toilet into the sewer at Weybridge RC, so you'll just have to keep your legs crossed a bit longer!
FISA Tour 2016
Next year's FISA tour will be in Austria from 25th June - 3rd July.  Applications must be sent to Roy by 1st February as they need to be approved by British Rowing before being submitted to the organisers.
