Spring jaunt upstream

We arrange a sailing, boating and social activity programme for the year with plenty of space in between for all members to enjoy the club and the river in their own way with their own particular type of boat. Water-born flotilla jaunts to local, children friendly, riverside pubs for lunches are also popular. The Regatta is a highlight, with sailing, rowing and canoeing races and a club barbecue for the evening prize giving.  The Chertsey picnic where, subject to the weather and state of the river, we travel upstream to Chertsey Meads for picnic lunch and games is a well attended event.

Club meetings are held on the second Wednesday each month, generally at The Old Crown pub except for June and July meetings which are held in the club house.

Further events are arranged during the year, as and when weather permits.
