Rowing Club

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..... 

Take a look at our Photos page to see what we've been up to recently

Never rowed before? No problem! We run learn to row courses in the Spring, Summer and Autumn. 

Next course September.   COURSE FULL.  Book now for next April

Racing (though of course we are not a racing club!)
Two Weyfarers crews took part in the Great Tyne Row on 2nd September.  Alasdair's crew, comprising Steve, Brian, Lisa and Kate, came third overall, jointly winning the prize for the fastest mixed crew in exactly the same time as the Weybridge mixed crew - who of course are true racing rowers and on average 30 years younger!

Our Great River Race crew (Roy, Kim, Paul Sermon, David S, Sarah and Annette, coxed by Alasdair with the Mayor of Spelthorne as passenger)  in a fixed-seat Thames Cutter, achieved an impressive time of 2 hours 49 minutes and 45 seconds.  PHotos here (courtesy of Kim)
