For 2020, a postponed Hyne Cup was rescheduled from February 9th to the 23rd but now CANCELLED due to the river being in flood and a low chance of high river levels receding. 

The Hyne Cup is a private match held around mid-February between the Eights of Weybridge Rowing Club (WEY) and Walton Rowing Club (WLT). The cup itself was donated by the family of John Hyne, a WEY member who was killed in World War II.

Nowadays, all the clubs on the Shepperton to Sunbury reach are invited to race over the course in crew boats: WEY, WLT, Weybridge Ladies Amateur Rowing Club (WEL), Weyfarers Rowing Club (WEF), Thames Valley Skiff Club (TVS), St George's College Boat Club (SGC), and Cranmore School.

It was originally a side-by-side race, but it is presently run as a 'head' race or time trial, rowed over 3000 metres downstream from Elmbridge Canoe Club to Miskins Wharf, just above Walton RC.


  • Hyne Cup - the fastest Eight from Walton or Weybridge

  • Murtough Cup - under review; traditionally the fastest Men's 'IM3' Eight from any club on the reach

  • Allwork Cup - under review; traditionally the fastest Men's 'Novice' Eight from any club on the reach

  • Henry Stebbing Cup - the fastest Women's crew from any club on the reach - no handicapping.


Hosting the event alternates between WLT and WEY with the date being agreed between the respective captains; usually in February. WLT host in 2021.
