Even the sport of rowing is not immune to colourful fans – you know the ridiculous costumes sported by fan(atic)s who are suddenly extremely comfortable walking through the street with their undies on the outside of their pants and their face dripping with team-colour paint.
Our fans, however, are much more toned-down. (Sigh of relief.) We at Rowperfect decided it’s high time that someone captured the cheeky tees you see adorning contestants and fans alike at regattas. Every Friday check out this space for a bit of rowing humour with an update on cheeky t shirts for rowers.
From a Rowperfect Reader
This week a Rowperfect reader, Penny Cuthbert, a development officer from London Youth Rowing sent us a cheeky rowing tee.
This is our T shirt from The Junior Worlds earlier this year.
We had 150 young people from East End parading round Dorney lake in them. We
truly took over the Worlds!
The London Youth Rowing t-shirt is exhibited in the far left and centre image (front and back). The far right tee was spotted at the Head of the Charles Regatta.
Note: These are real t-shirts, photographed at real regattas. People actually wear them (we swear).
Have an outrageous rowing t-shirt? Send us a photo and we’ll add it in a post!
