Weybridge ready for new NatWest regatta

Weybridge RC will play host to a brand new community racing event tomorrow (Friday 25th April) – the NatWest Community Regatta.

A unique addition to the rowing season, the new regatta has been created to offer local businesses in Surrey a chance to meet and compete on the River Thames.

For many of the competitors it will be their first experience of competitive rowing, having trained for weeks and months in order to take on their local business rivals.

Crews will compete in coxed fours, with a time trial in the morning and traditional regatta racing in the afternoon. The winners will be invited to attend this year’s Henley Royal Regatta with lunch at Leander Club.

Supporters are very welcome on the river bank from 10am on Friday, when the first time trial races will get underway, with food and refreshments available for rowers and spectators.
