RACE EVENTS WE HOST
As a community rowing club we rely heavily on the volunteer support given to make the race events we host such a success, every year, and without whom we would not be able to run a safe and effective event. For this, we are hugely thankful.

WEYBRIDGE WINTER HEAD (JANUARY)
The first race of the New Year with lots of events for Seniors, Masters and Juniors, the Weybridge Winter Head is raced over 3000 metres downstream, from Elmbridge Canoe Club to Walton Rowing Club.
HYNE CUP (PRIVATE MATCH) (FEBRUARY)
Traditionally the Hyne Cup has been a private match in early-February between the Eights of Weybridge Rowing Club and Walton Rowing Club. Nowadays, all rowing clubs on the Shepperton to Sunbury reach are welcome to join the race over 3k downstream, a reverse of the original 'Silver Sculls' course.
WALTON & WEYBRIDGE REGATTA (JUNE)
Formerly the Walton Amateur Regatta and held annually since 1862, the Walton & Weybridge Regatta is run on a stretch of the river Thames in Walton-on-Thames, over a 1000-metre course, starting just below Walton Marina and finishing downstream around Walton Rowing Club.
WEYBRIDGE COMMUNITY REGATTA (AUGUST)
Every year since 2014, we have opened our doors to local businesses, running the increasingly popular Weybridge Community Regatta. We encourage entries of teams of four from those who have never rowed before as well as those who have rowed the past.
WEYBRIDGE SILVER SCULLS (OCTOBER)
Founded in 1956, Weybridge Silver Sculls is the oldest sculling head on the non-tidal reaches of the Thames. Many famous scullers have won the trophy including Sir Steve Redgrave, Guy Pooley (4 times winner), Chris Baillieu, Dan Topolski and Tim Crooks. The event was expanded a few years ago to include double sculls, and we now J14 coxed quads for boys and girls.
