Imagining the Possibilities with Weybridge Rowing Club in 2017 and Beyond...
Weybridge Rowing Club Junior Section is a lively and vibrant part of the club. We run a number of courses during the year specifically designed to introduce youngsters to the sport and run an active competition programme.
Our top juniors win at local and national events with a number going on to represent GB internationally. We pride ourselves at being a very 'intimate' operation where we get to know all members of the squad, and they are keen to attend training, working hard, but enjoying it.
We have an excellent fleet of boats and a professional Head Coach who is ably assisted by a dedicated team of volunteer coaches, many of whom started when their children learned to row at Weybridge, and have stayed on long after their offspring have moved on.
We also have fun when training allows!
Please feel free to contact Clive on clive[at]wrcjnr.com for more information.

Clive is away from 7th February - 19th March so Nick will update the web page in his absence.
Please note new requirements for leaving and returning to the pontoon effective immediately:
All boats must spin tight on the Weybridge side of the river and proceed downriver on the Surrey bank. Do NOT wander across to the Hamhaugh Island side and then go down stream on the wrong side of the river.
When returning to the pontoon ensure you are going upstream on the Hamhaugh Island side when you enter the club stretch and STAY on that side until you get opposite the large moored boat. Check BEFORE cutting across the river for other river traffic either from the pontoon or coming up or down stream.
To reinforce this, the river will be buoyed for a couple of weeks.
It's cold on the river - no bare skin rule now applies. Warm socks, leggings and long tops please!
Reminder on Clothing :
BOW Person or single sculler MUST WEAR A HI VIZ TOP. This is an important club rule.
Always bring spare clothes and towel even on Thursdays. The rule is simple - No change of clothes - No Rowing.
Bring warm clothes for prior and post rowing especially during this recent cold spell.
Wear plenty of thin layers when in the boat. Not thick absorbent coats.
Have a look at this page which includes some interesting videos of skills you ought to be able to master .... from British Rowing.
