Introducing a new...

WEY To Chat

Once registered* to use the new WEY Hey! app, you also become a member of the WEY online community, WEY To Chat! 
Give it go...
*Please wait the 7-10 seconds for 'Sign Up' box to appear.

What will I be able to do? As before, but now on a more stable platform, you can create your own login to continue signing up for sessions, view the weekend crew lineup (Seniors), book a boat, report an issue with a boat, report an incident, view the list of emergency contacts, shop for kit and more, and more new features to come...​

What's happening to my previous app login? Why do I have to signup again? To remain GDPR compliant, individual logins for the first-generation WEY Hey! app will be deleted in a week or so. This should give us time to make the switch to using the new mobile-friendly members' area. With even greater information security, you need to login afresh either using your Google or Facebook login or by creating a new login - thank you for your patience

WEY To Steer (really!)

Want a CoW? Step through the WEY To Steer online course covering the basics of coxing and bow-steering our reach, ahead of taking the practical assessment towards getting your CoW. This is worth doing during the quieter month of August and in readiness for winter months, when conditions can dictate who can or can't boat, but also develop your rowing and give you freedom to boat independently*
Step One. Complete Parts 1 & 2 of the Water Safety Quiz; ideally also, have done the capsize and recovery drill - out of a single just off the club steps, possible at this time of year

Step Two. Find a CoW assessor or book a 1.5h slot with me to do the practical assessment for your CoW

Step Three. As part of a practical, demonstrate these checklist items for whichever CoW you are completing

If you haven't passed your CoW, you should:
i) be in a boat with someone who has;
ii) be accompanied by a boat with a crew member with a CoW; or
iii) be accompanied by a coach

As a cox, you need a coxing CoW to boat independently - or be accompanied by a coach, or at least one member of the crew you are coxing holds a CoW.

*Remember to book a boat for every outing - also available via WEY Hey! app

WEY To Train (Seniors/Masters)

Please do take a moment to absorb the new training plan - here's to rowing faster! 

Plans do and can change but for the coming 2019/20 year we shall aim for more structure and direction throughout the year, working within the context of probably the most hotly contested events: Fours Head/Vets Fours (Nov), HoRR and VHoRR (Mar), Masters Champs (Jun), Henley Royal and Masters (Jul), and World Rowing Masters Regatta (early-Sep, in Austria in 2020). These are the peak but certainly not the only competitive events for 2019/20.

Both keeping injury at bay and catering to undoubtedly busy lives, whether around WEY or working away, WEY To Train for Seniors/Masters is deliberately non-prescriptive during the week, in terms doing the set work on a set day, but rather makes suggestions and leaves it to you to decide and juggle along with your other commitments.


Can you help this Sunday?

If you are available to help out with Sunday's Adult Learn To Row taster session, please say so via this weekend's editable lineup.

Remember: crews are mostly self-organising throughout August. Remember, too, to organise your route around Sunday's road closures for the RideLondon event
