The Hants & Dorset Amateur Rowing Association is an organisation of affiliated Clubs and Regatta's administering Coastal rowing within Hampshire, Dorset and the Isle of Wight.

The Hants & Dorset ARA was founded in 1903 and originally consisted of seven Clubs - Bournemouth, Poole, Weymouth, Southsea, Southampton, Shanklin and Bournemouth YMCA. The Association was formed with an agreed split from CARA, who had, since 1893 administered all rowing along the South Coast from Herne Bay to Weymouth - but increased travelling expenses made the area too large for Clubs to support all Regattas and there was a consequent drop in entries.
