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 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.
January and February Club rowing times
There are a few Tuesday 6pm rows in as there has been some interest in continuing to row on Tuesdays when the tide is right. For these rows buoyancy aids/ like jackets will need to be worn and a head torch will be useful. They will be weather dependent. If the weather is not good for rowing, we may just need to adjourn to the pub.
The Sunday times are departure times. Please make sure you are at the Jolly 15 minutes before the row to help prepare the gigs.
Sunday 2 January: 10am row
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 -
