Clare Boat Club Blazer and Stash Rules:



Other symbols: Both Men and Women’s Captain’s are allowed Captain’s buttons.

Competing at Henley Royal Regatta will be defined by the Clare Boat Club Committee if and when needed.

You may continue to wear a certain blazer, even if you are no longer eligible – e.g you are eligible to wear a First May’s Crew as long as you rowed/coxed a first boat in a set of May Bumps.


Note: you can order blazers before having rowed in the Bumps competitions, but you cannot wear them before being eligible. It is also worth remembering that it normally takes 3-4 weeks to get blazers made at A&E Clothier, but during peak times (before the Boat Race, which is in April, and then before May Bumps) it will take considerably longer. It is also relatively easy to change the embroidery on the pocket and trim, so ‘upgrading’ a blazer will be fairly easy. [Please note, however, that the hazard tape trim is not allowed on black blazers]


Prices depend on the choice of fabric. The polyester one is £145, poly-wool (most people’s choice) is £169, wool flannel comes at £189 and the lightweight super fine wool is £320. The cost of the trim and badge are to be added to these costs.



The black bowtie with thin yellow stripesPhoto and the white one with thin yellow and black stripes are Clare College bowties, respectively winter and summer ones.


The bowties cost £16 for the polyester and £21 for the silk one.
