A great opportunity for businesses in and around Weybridge to compete with each other in a new way and support the local community
The regatta is organised by Weybridge Rowing Club, along the beautiful River Thames. The Regatta has been created as a community initiative to give local businesses an opportunity to meet, network and compete in a sporting environment.
A full fun day
- We kick off with breakfast and welcome at the Holiday Inn, Shepperton.
- Then down at the river, every team does a 500m time trial in the Desborough Cut and a 2k ergo relay (500m each).
- Lunch is provided and there is plenty of time to network and to make useful links and friends with other local businesses.
- In the afternoon, we will run a side-by-side regatta, again 500m. Depending on the entries we may have events for single sex and mixed teams.
- The day will end with prize giving and dinner in the marquee by the river around 5pm.
- Medals are being specially designed for the occasion and will surely become collectors’ items!
- Before the day – two-hour training sessions available to each team, and at least one session is mandatory for each participant. Make it social have a well earned drink afterwards with your team mates.
