We are still using our boat booking system to arrange rowing. Boats are booked online in advance and the cleaning protocols followed to help prevent the transmission of Covid-19. We are hoping that club rowing on Tuesdays and Sundays will start again after 21 June. Members will be informed by email and the website will be updated.
Hamble River Rowing club was set up with the aim to encourage and develop traditional recreational rowing on the river Hamble. The "club" 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 on Tuesday evenings, in the summer months, members can get afloat with minimal cost and enjoy rowing with fellow enthusiasts. Alternatively most Sundays are available for longer rows up and down the river, with a stop for tea and cake in Hamble a popular diversion.
On the Tuesday evenings that the tide will go out too early, we organise a row down the river to one of the many pubs in Hamble, have a pint and some supper, before returning to the Jolly on the incoming tide.
Through the summer season, there are a number of away rows to other rivers, as well as participating in the races and events organised on the Hamble river -
