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 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.

August rowing times are below:

On Sundays, please continue to arrive 15 minutes before the published row time. 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 timed so that you can do both if you would like to.

Please keep an eye on this page, as rowing times may change.
