New Club Regalia!

A new range of crew wear for the membership has long been overdue and the inspiration for the new range came about after buying merchandise at the Trad Rally, supplied and embroidered by "Shipshape" Their range of quality clothing- including "Regatta" and "Gildan" - will provide us with a core range of hardwearing, practical boating attire, embroidered with our latest logo, that will further our promotional efforts of the TVBC whenever we are seen out on the water (or in a watering hole!)

Although the cream & brown club colours for Burgees, "The Boater" magazine and other stationery remains appropriate, it has not proved to be very popular or practical, especially as outer garments. I still have large stocks of the cream colour polo shirts that remain unsold and they are a devil to wash after a BBQ! We have therefore opted for navy blue outer garments and retained a cream polo shirt, but a deeper colour that will blend in with our new, heavy brushed cotton cap.

The range available enables us to expand and make changes as demand dictates and the intention is to place an order on a monthly basis and distribute the orders at club events or by post, as required. Our supplier can embroider almost anything, so we have introduced a club tie in silk and a canvas holdall for those weekends at club rallies.

The merchandise includes the club logo and is competitively priced in comparison to fellow yacht clubs using quality brands. Post & packing charges will be kept to a minimum, averaging £3.60 for a parcel containing a fleece and a burgee. An order form is available below to enable new and existing members to combine their clothing, burgee and plaque order all together.

We can even introduce cut glass Champagne flutes for those lazy afternoons at the Trad Rally!

So please,  have a browse and let me know what you think. Email me at:  janepercival@icloud.com
