WEY To Help Out 

To quote our Club President:
"Ask not what your club can do for you, ask what you can do for your club."

Check out our new 'jobs board'
for ways you can help around the Club
Speaking of one such hugely helpful volunteer...
A huge thanks to Nick Coxhead for attending to a range of boat repairs last week, including filling in chips on Wey Hey and Weyward, as well as repairing large holes in the stern tip of LightWeyt and HeavyWeyt, and fixing Jack (or was it Chris) the coaching launch that would not start last weekend!
And then there's...
Eric Wilson for fixing the very same afternoon a mains water pipe that serves the clubhouse and Weyfarers hut; Geoff Thomas for rigging and improving the setup on Wey To Do It, Doodlebug, and Jolly Roger, for the listing and sale of the Eton Whiffs and Seoul Survivor, so enabling the purchase of Either Wey - with thanks to Graham Campbell here, as well as having us think the fuel tanks for the coaching launches are self-filling(!); Anatole Beams and Carl Boon for reproducing name and number decals for boats returning from their refurb; Amy Beard, Ashley Tilling, Brendan GibbsClive Capel, Graham Cocks and Nick Coxhead for coaching and keeping the Junior section thriving; Anne Morris, Caroline Turnbull, Rachel Kornberg and Tom Meade for regularly coaching our schools rowing programme; Greg Gregory-Jones for organising and cooking such a lovely Spreadbury Dinner; and Clive Capel with Rachel Kornberg for taking on a review ensuring our compliance with GDPR; and Dave Cox for being our eBay warrior.
And yes, all are volunteers!
