NOTICES

NEW - JUNIOR SIGN-UP SHEET
Click here to sign up for training sessions - I have updated the link which I hope might solve the problem of iPhone users having problems.  If it's still a problem, please let me know by email and we will add you to a specific 'approval' list. We recommed that you download the Google 'Sheets' app for your phone, which works very well.

Go to Current EA River Status for up to date information.  Currently on White boards

Weybridge Rowing Club is sponsored by Weybridge and Walton Physiotherapy, who have rowers among their physio staff.


I have raised nearly £400 for the Club by using Easyfundraising when buying stuff I would buy anyway from Amazon, John Lewis and Booking.com among others.  Access the retailer through the donation reminder and Easyfundraising does the rest.  It's free money so please sign up. Please click here to download their donation reminder or click here to get started https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/invite/Y25KAB/   .. Many thanks. 

We are able to confirm that providing parents collecting their children are in their cars and ready to move upon request they should not be ticketed at the top of the road.  If cars are left unattended outside of the 8 parking spaces, parked on the pavement or grass or otherwise inconsiderately, they WILL be ticketed and neither WARA nor the Club will appeal this.

Please keep an eye on this page as things may change at short notice.

Check this link for important boat checking information
                    

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.

It has been positively commented upon how well junior crews, in the main, have taken to this, but SOME STILL NEED TO IMPROVE, please.

Thanks

Committee.

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.
