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.
June and July 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.

The Rowing Diary has also been updated with rows and events for the coming months.
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 the Swanwick, Bursledon and Warsash Regatta. The dates for these events are currently on the social events page of the website http://www.hambleriverrowing.co.uk/index.php/social-events as well as the Rowing Diary page and is updated as we plan new events.
