Hamble River Rowing
- Category: Welcome

Hamble River Rowing Club was set up with the aim to encourage and develop traditional recreational rowing on the River Hamble. The club is based at the famous Jolly Sailor pub in Bursledon, has an informal and relaxed style, where the idea is to allow all members a chance to row in a safe and enjoyable environment.
As long as the tide is high enough, members can get afloat with minimal cost and enjoy rowing with fellow enthusiasts.
Rowing times for the next few weeks are below:
For club rowing please arrive 15 minutes before the published row time. This is so we know how many boats we will be using and to get them ready. Please help with getting the boats ready for rowing, and ask if you are not sure what to do.
Night time rows require lifejackets/buoyancy aids to be worn and a headtorch. Thank you!
Social Rows: we are out for longer and usually stop for coffee- so allow 2 to 21/2 hours for a social row.
Just Row: we are usually out for about an hour, there is no coffee stop! The two rows are usually arranged so that you can do both if you would like to.
Please keep an eye on this page, as rowing times may change.
You can use EasyTide to check the tides for the next 7 days.
