Train Smarter, Row Faster

Due to the upcoming pilot workshop this Monday at Guildford RC being oversubscribed, another workshop will run...

Monday 18 December - Weybridge Rowing Club - 7pm for 7.30pm

Hosted by BR Masters Committee, the workshop covers the physiological changes associated with ageing. There will be discussion on how to slow the inevitable decline and how to play to your strengths. Other areas include: metabolic conditioning (cardiovascular training), tissue conditioning (strength, power and trunk endurance) together with flexibility and stretching, training programmes, nutrition, avoiding injury and rigging.

Register here by 10-Dec

Confirmation will follow in a few days along with a support manual.
It's beginning to look a lot like... Christmassy rows!

There is a long-standing tradition at Weybridge for enjoying a (fairly short) Christmas morning row followed by rum punch, with the rum kindly donated by former Weybridge member Michael Swain, who now lives in Bermuda. Beware, it isn’t like any rum you may have drunk before!

The outing is a combined Weybridge/Weyfarers row in whatever boats people feel like using – last year we had an octuple and a couple of touring quads.

Meet at the Club for 10am
Take me to the weekend lineup already!

Masters: have your say on the new competition framework

The Pairs Head was the first head race to use the new British Rowing competition framework. Crews were grouped into different Pennant categories according to their number of CRI points, and further grouped into broad age groups with no time handicaps applied, e.g. all B/C championship crews race against each other with no handicaps. Several feel the new system is generally unfair and have written to Karon Phillips, British Rowing Masters Committee Chairman. 

For more information about her and to feedback on the new system, please go here 

She has been very supportive and asks as many Masters as possible to write to her; the more people who write, the more likely it is British Rowing will recommend a change in the rules of racing. If you feel strongly about it, please write to her at
