The sport of rowing exposes you to the elements. Sun, rain, hail, snow, wind... you name it and we will row in it. Therefore it is important that you dress for the weather!!!

During summer, most rowers tend to wear tighter fitting t-shirts/tank tops and spandex-type shorts.  If it is a hot day, you will need a baseball cap, sunnies and some super-sunscreen! 

For winter rowing the number one rule is - NO COTTON!  Cotton just gets wet and makes you colder!  Try some breathable materials or blends.  Most rowers tend to wear layers, so as they warm up on the water, they can take a few layers off!  The one piece of gear that you won't find anywhere but a rowing store is POGIES!  They are fleece mittens that fit over your hands AND the oar to allow you to feel what you are doing and keep your hands toasty.
