The Byfleet Boat Club Ltd, The Boat House, 4, Old Parvis Road, West Byfleet, Surrey KT14 6LE 01932 340828
The club has a busy social and cruising calander, plus moorings, dinghy compound, workshop and clubhouse on the Wey navigation. We have ten sturdy and stable rowing boats that can seat up to five people.
Boats are provided for hire, with one set of oars, and lifejackets are available if you need them. A choice of routes on the Wey Navigation can take you as far as Pyrford Lock, by the Anchor pub, or to New Haw Lock, or to Lock 1 at Woodham on the Basingstoke Canal. The club is open for boat hire on Satur-days, Sundays, and public holidays starting at the Easter weekend, through until the final weekend of September.
The first boat out is at 10am, and all boats must be back by 6pm. Advance booking for one or two boats is not necessary. The cost is £8 per hour per boat (seats five). A £20 returnable deposit also ap-plies. If you have a group of people wanting to hire several boats, special group rates apply, and you should book in advance. If required, boats for groups can be supplied during the week by arrange-ment beforehand.
