Anyone wanting to race for Cygnet must a) pull hard & b) wear the racing all-in-one.
Let's be honest, most people have a bit of a kit fetish. It's rumoured that some people only join a club in order to get the tie, the badge, the blazer, the kudos – and rowing is as good at feeding a kit habit as any sport.
Cygnet does not generally hold a stock of kit – it is usually ordered in batches at regular times throughout the year, typically in time for races or other events.
The British firm Godfrey Sports supply all of our official race strip, including splash tops, gillets, leggings etc.
The club opens a kit ordering 'window with Godfrey several time a year so that members can buy their race kit. Usually the captain will inform members, by email, when the window is open. That information is also at the top of the Cygnet Club Kit page on the Godfrey website and there is also a sizing guide at the bottom of that page
There are really only three bits of formal Cygnet attire:
Need • Club tie • £25 • Check stock
You will need a club tie for formal events such as Henley Royal Regatta or the Henley Lunch.
Want • Club blazer • approx £200 • Check stock
Blazers are optional. You may choose to wear a navy blazer to formal events but for the more adventurous, Cygnet has its own blazer. These are made to order.
Bling • Club cufflinks • £20 • Check stock
An excellent accompaniment to both the tie and the blazer for those who want the 'full set'
Occasionally we will place an order for casual, non-rowing kit such as tee-shirts, sweatshirts or hoodies, usually for a particular event or celebration. As with race kit, orders must be placed in advance and notices of special kit will be posted elsewhere and placed in newsletters and the captain's weekly email, usually with an order form.
