2nd Hamble Rally

Postby Rapier » Tue Mar 14, 2017 12:48 pm

Following last years' successful gathering in September 2016 (8 boats and 14 people) we will be running the same format again this year, in June.

Dates: 23rd, 24th & 25th June, 2017

Where: Hamble-le-Rice, Hampshire

Tides (add 1 hour for BST) and local information: https://indd.adobe.com/view/35d7a9d0-de ... 628652aacc

Boating Waters: River Hamble, River Itchen, Beaulieu River, Southampton Water, Solent, perhaps a trip to Cowes, IOW.

Challenge: Although both rivers and Southampton Water can be calm, gIven the nature of the tides and sea around the Solent, this event will fall under the CMBA's 'Challenging' category (details in the club magazine).

Mooring facilities: Mercury Marina - finger pontoons or double rafting up a push - self launch, trailer storage and mooring cost around £50-55 for the weekend. Map of the venue is here:-

Accommodation in and around Hamble is always very busy, so I encourage early booking. The B&Bs and campsites below are within a few minutes drive of the slipway and Club, but Hotels are out of the way and they will charge typical coastal rates in the summer. I've stayed in Farthings - a 2min walk to the Hamble Village centre and pubs / restaurants. The campsite next to Mercury Marina (now owned by them) is about 15-20mins walk from the village centre, but proved a good choice for Vans, RVs and they can cope with tents too.


Informal supper (set menu) to be held at the Water's Edge Restaurant on Saturday night, 24th June. The restaurant has bar / coffee facilities and is a refuge if it rains

The RSrnYC has excellent facilities, a very pleasant and large bar with terrace, plus great views over the river and moorings.

Camping and /or motorhomes / caravanning - here are 2 good sites within a 5mins drive, or a 10 minute walk from Mercury Marina:-

Airbnb - most will be within walking distance to the marina of 15-20minutes (avoid south of Hamble Lane up to Copse Lane - these suffer from all night industrial noise from Cooper Vision / GE / BP & late night HGV fuel tanker traffic and shipping bulk oil carrier discharging)

Riverside Holidays - Campsite owned by MDL & next door to Mercury Marina. They take RVs, Vans and Tents (though tent camping may be damp!). Deposit will be required and checkout is 11am on the 25th, parking is available at Mercury.

re Hamble Rally

We have close family illness that will stop us using our camper for the rally but hopefully just attending on a "daily" basis , we already have a reservation with electric hookup at the Riverside Holiday Campsite adjacent to Mercury Marina, It's pre-booked, pre-paid and non refundable, so If any member attending the rally still has not reserved a pitch - please pm or call me and it's yours for free, I will give you the reservation number. - 1st come 1st served.........

If anyone else interested in attending please let me know, the more the merrier, but I need to let MDL know final mooring numbers fairly soon. There are a few members, from last year, whom are unable to make the event date this year, so the list of attendees above has been updated.
