Hamble River Rowing


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.  

Jolly Sailor

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 may 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.

October club rowing times:

Sunday 3 October: 10am row
Tuesday 5 October : no row, meet at the Jolly Sailor for a drink from 630pm

Fawley chimney  is being demolished at 7am. The tides work for us to row downriver to a suitable viewpoint to witness this. It will be an early start, meeting at the Jolly Sailor at 0540 and leaving at 6am to row downriver. We are planning on having some form of breakfast afterwards. Breakfast details will be finalised, once we know the numbers of people rowing. Anyone interested in joining please let Amanda know by 23 October. 

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 - including the Hamble River Raid and Bursledon Regatta.
