Centenary Sail Past
Be part of the biggest spectacle on the Hamble River this year
The HRSC Centenary Sail Past
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.
Anyone with a boat on the Hamble River is invited to join the parade to celebrate this momentous occasion, and people of all ages are encouraged to get involved.
The event is intended to provide a spectacle for the residents of Hamble and Warsash to enjoy from ashore, as well as for members of HRSC and other River Hamble Combined Clubs. The event will take place on Tuesday 6 August at around HW Portsmouth (16.45), with boats divided into four fleets:
- 1.Baby Dinghies: Such as Oppies sailing inshore, on a short course parallel to the Hamble Quay, north of HRSC and south of the PPYH.
- 2.Medium Dinghies: Such as Toppers sailing on a short course inshore, in the lagoon that forms at HW, between HRSC and Hamble Point Marina.
- 3.Larger Dinghies: Such as Visions sailing with the Foxer fleet, in their normal patch on the Warsash side of the river.
- 4.Others: The main parade will include any size boat sailing or motoring / being towed (conditions dependent) up 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.
