The River Hamble Harbour Authority’s primary responsibility is to maintain safety within the river and its approaches.
The Harbour Authority uses its powers to help educate and enforce safety in the River. River users must make themselves familiar with the safety information we provide.
The Speed Limit within the River Hamble is 6 knots.
The speed limit applies everywhere north of the number 1 mark at the mouth of the river.

The Harbour Master issues safety newsletters twice a year. These include advice on current safety issues and trends and should be read by all those using the river.
