According to section 2.39 of IARU rules, “All crew members and scullers must wear uniform dress in their club’s registered colours and designs while racing…”
Thus, either a One-piece or a Zephyr is a requirement.
The One-pieces can be ordered through Ronan Ivers (Phoenix Rowing Club, and representative of Stitch Clothing Co). Please contact Ronan directly – he can also give advice re sizes, etc. One-pieces cost EUR 60 (discount available if more than 25 ordered !).
The Zephyr is a cheap and quick DIY alternative for a One-Piece. The Zephyr is ideal for beginners. Simply purchase a long-sleeve white top (like those available in Penney’s for EUR 3.99). Then bring it to Clothing Alterations (opposite Superquinn in Kimmage). We have a deal with them – just tell them you need the Commercial Rowing Club colours. They will then attach the Commercial forest green / skyblue strips for EUR 10 (ready for next day collection). Total cost EUR 13.99! Who said rowing was an expensive sport !!
The [optional] splashtops are EUR 90 which includes the crest and the rowers name embroidered on the front and the club name printed on the back. Again Ronan Ivers can be contacted directly for orders (See poster attached with contact details.)
