Club vests must be worn if you’re racing for the Club at Haslers or Sprints. To order one, please email Vicky on firstname.lastname@example.org (or see her at club). Vicky stocks two styles @ £18/£20 each. You can also purchase one directly from Five57 – it’s a different cut and material and costs £39.
Vicky puts in a bulk order to Slogons for Club bags. See the images below. These have Reading Canoe Club printed on them. In addition, you can request your initials or name on them (at an extra cost).
There are 2 sizes: 30 litres (£30) or 50 litres (£35)
Please email Vicky at email@example.com if you would like to order a bag, and specify if initials or name is required.

Racing kit at Five57
We have also selected Five57 to supply water specific race gear for the more serious paddlers amongst us. This consists of leggings, a racing vest, various base layer tops and a gilet. The race vests are a different fit to the main stock and do cost more. If you decide to buy one, please do let Vicky know if you’re happy with the comfort, fit, value for money etc.
You can order individually but only within the set order window dates. To order please visit the Reading Canoe Club team page on five57sportsgear.com and enter the password to access it:
The current order window is now OPEN and will close on March 18th 2018. Items will then hopefully be ready for delivery by end of April/early May. However please note there needs to be a minimum of six items ordered of any one design item (can be a mix of sizes/gender) by club members for the order to be processed. If that number isn’t reached within the order window, you will be made aware and refunded your money, and you will need to wait until the next order window. Delivery of this race clothing will be in one box to Vicky Elson Smith – what they mean by ‘Delivery to Clubhouse’.
If you’re keen to have Reading Canoe Club emblazoned on the back, or other personalisations, RCC member Martin Watson’s printing firm Slogons@mail.com can add it. (Please note this CANNOT be done on racing vests).
