New HDARA club Dolphin RC look set to make their championship season debut at Southsea Rowing Regatta tomorrow. 

Dolphin RC, who are based in Emsworth, near Portsmouth, have a crew racing in the Ladies Masters category at the dual association event on the beach at Southsea on Saturday. 

The club are set to be represented by Rachel Norris, Anya Loynes, Alison Kidd and Julia Rooke against championship leaders BTC as well as two crews from Christchurch and one from Southampton. 

It'll be the new clubs first appearance at a HDARA summer event after they applied for affiliation in the last 18 months.

The club have competed with the association before at non-championship regattas, most notably at BTC Head of the River. 

South Coast Journalism will be filming highlights of Southsea regatta as usual. Keep an eye on our home page or social media accounts for further details on Sunday morning.
