Walton & Weybridge Regatta - Saturday 20th May 2017
What's going on during the day along the river:
Most of the activity at Walton & Weybridge Regatta centres around the club house of Walton Rowing Club. This is located in Sunbury Lane, Walton-on-Thames, Surrey. KT12 2JA.
The whole course can be viewed from the tow path on the Surrey bank of the Thames: from the start up-stream of The Anglers and The Swan public houses down to the finish near Walton Rowing Club. The Regatta Enclosure is on the small area of park at the rear of Miskin's Wharf just up-stream of Walton Rowing Club. The Regatta Enclosure includes refreshment and bar tents. The view from the Enclosure is straight up the course and spectators have a good view of racing from start to finish.
Sunbury Lane can become very congested, but ample public car parking is available at Cowey Sale on the Surrey bank near Walton Bridge. This is a pleasant two hundred metre walk along the tow path to the start of the regatta. There should also be parking available at the recreation ground just upstream from Walton Rowing Club, though there will be a small charge for this.
Please note: Competitors will receive full information and location details with their 'joining instructions'.
The Walton & Weybridge Regatta Committee consists of members of Walton Rowing Club, Weybridge Rowing Club, Thames Valley Skiff Club and Weybridge Ladies Amateur Rowing Club.
Entries into the Regatta can only come from clubs affiliated to British Rowing. If anyone is interested in entering an event with a pub crew or similar, it might be worth looking at the Weybridge Community Regatta
