Gloves – some do, some don’t – your choice!
Trainers – to row in
In the winter it can get very cold, and you will need to wear layers of
light clothing rather than a big padded jacket as this will get in the way.
Ideally a long sleeved thermal base layer (as worn by climbers and
walkers) under 1 or 2 t-shirts with a sweatshirt and light waterproof
on top will give you the protection you need from the weather.
Stretchy leggings, of the type used by runners or cyclists are ideal.
We DO go out when it is raining, snowing and freezing, the only weather conditions that
keep us off the water are fog and strong winds.
A hat is also desirable as your ears can get cold.
A change of warm clothes
In the summer, leggings, shorts and t-shirts designed for running, cycling or rowing are
Sun cream, sunglasses and baseball caps are required on most days as the sunlight is
reflected off the water even when it’s cloudy.
Old trainers/crocks are suitable to enter the boats from the water.
You should bring a change of clothes and towel in case of a heavy downpour of rain.
We have good changing and shower facilities.
When representing the club at regattas we try to wear club colours.
