Regatta is one of the highlights of the year and it is our custom to dress up formally, in Regatta style. This is a tradition we cherish and wish to maintain.
For that reason we ask everybody, both Members and their Guests, to follow the dress code outlined below. For the sake of the majority, anyone whose dress does not conform will, regrettably, have to be turned away by the staff at the gate.
To avoid this embarrassment, please will Members take great care that their Guests know about this code well in advance, and observe it.
Gentlemen are required to wear lounge suits, or jackets or blazers with flannels or chinos, and a tie or cravat. Jackets must be worn at all times. In exceptionally hot weather permission may be given to remove jackets by the Chairman or his/her representative. Boys over 13 years should follow this code.
Ladies are required to wear skirts or dresses. The hemline must be on or below the knee. Ladies wearing shorter or revealing dresses will be declined entry. Trousers, jeans, culottes and leggings are not allowed. We much encourage and appreciate the wearing of hats. Girls over 13 years should follow this code.
Children under 13:
Children under 13 years should not wear trainers, jeans, sweat shirts or tee shirts. A jacket and tie are not necessary for boys.
Please also note the following:
These rules also apply to Members and their guests on boats moored on the river front and in the moat from 10.00am from Wednesday to Sunday.
