I've had loads of requests recently enquiring about filming of the Hampshire and Dorset Rowing Regattas and where people can get footage. If you wish to be kept updated, please follow the link below and quickly fill out the contact form. This will all follow current GDPR regulations.


Swanage Video.

Alex Barnes (Lymington ARC) has published a feature video about Swanage regatta. The feature is an experimental video and was designed to be viewable by rowers and non-rowers alike, as well as showcasing the HDARA in a positive light.

The video is presented by Talia Jones and features all five senior finals in their entirety. The video also includes interviews with Tim Bull (Swanage Entries Secretary), Pete Jacobs (Poole ARC) and John Purkess (starting umpire, BTC). On top of that, the video includes basic information about the course (for anyone new to coastal rowing), clips of three close finals (men's junior fours final, women's novice & junior sculls) and a full round up of the day's results using footage from prize-giving. There is also a short montage of AB Videography's best footage from the day at the very end.

The original plan was for Talia's presenting to be filmed at Swanage itself but this was scrapped due to the weather forecast. Therefore, the presenting was filmed at Lymington as this was the only practical option left available to Alex at short notice.  

The full video is available on the AB Videography website: or directly on YouTube:

And extended race footage from every adult race (including the heats) is available to order here:!/Swanage-Regatta-2019-Race-Videos/p/141501405/category=35669116"
