Dress Code

Posted: 8/6/2021

    In accordance with By-law B13 the General Committee hereby gives notice that the general dress code for the Club is “Smart Casual”.

    The Club definition of Smart Casual for gentlemen excludes shirts or t-shirts without collars, rugby shirts or other similar sporting attire.  Footwear will exclude trainers.  Smart Casual for Ladies will be similarly appropriate.

    To this we should add that smart casual also excludes beach or sports wear such as baggy shorts and flip-flops for men and that denim must be smart – not working clothes. 

    There are two exceptions to this rule:

    1. Wearing sailing attire after a racing event is appropriate.
    2. Some events will be promoted as formal, Black Tie or otherwise associated with a theme, e.g. Halloween, Fancy Dress or to show support at a televised game of Rugby. Notification of such exceptions will be published on the Club website, TellTales and/or a relevant poster.
