The Hamble River Sailing Club (HRSC) is aiming to attract 100 boats to take part in its centenary sail past on the 6 August, to mark the very day the club was founded in 1919.

HRSC is oldest surviving sailing club on the Hamble River and has been an integral part of the community ever since. The event is intended to provide a spectacle for residents and to celebrate the wonderful life we all enjoy here, on and around the river. It is also being held to show appreciation to HRSC members and other River Hamble Combined Clubs for their continued support over the years.

"We encourage everyone to head down to the Hamble and Warsash shoreline to enjoy what we hope will be a magnificent atmosphere and sail by," comments Steph Merry, Commodore of HRSC. "Spectators will see more than 100 boats hold centre stage and provide a spectacle of noise and colour as they sail up the river. This is one event you shouldn't miss!"

The event will take place on Tuesday 6 August at around HW Portsmouth (16.45).

Follow Hamble River Sailing Club on Facebook for updates on this event.

Be part of it...

Anyone with a boat on the Hamble River is invited to join the parade to celebrate this momentous occasion. People of all ages are encouraged to get involved, and baby dinghies through to super yachts are welcome. The smaller of the fleet will sail inshore on both the Hamble and Warsash side, with the larger boats in the main channel.

The parade will proceed past the platform of HRSC Club House where a salute will be taken, then past Hamble Quay and up to a point north of Hamble Yacht Services, where boats will disperse. Everyone will be encouraged to dress in the HRSC colours of red, white and blue, and display Club flags if they have them.

If you are interested in being part of this significant event, you are urged to register as soon as possible so that the Club can track progress towards their goal of 100 boats.
