FlexiSail - Hamble
Hamble is a delightful maritime village with a superb view from the quay over the Hamble River and marinas.
The ‘mecca’ of yachting on the south coast, whose origins in maritime history go as far back as the 9th Century. Today, particularly during the summer months, river life is a hive of activity and the village is bustling with sailors and visitors.
The River Hamble is at the heart of the sheltered waters of the Solent protected from the open sea by the Isle of Wight, and benefiting from a two hour stand at high water. Thus it has become the ‘mecca’ of sailing on the south coast and is an ideal base for cruising, whether one’s horizons are limited to the Solent and Isle of Wight, or extend further afield.
Just across the Solent on the Isle of Wight is Cowes, a beautiful seafaring town world famous amongst sailors for its yearly regatta in early August, which spans a whole week of racing and fun!
