Sail, Learn and Enjoy yourself aboard the Amelie Rose


There are many ways to enjoy the Amelie Rose experience; try out a Traditional Taster Weekend, dive into a Discovery Cruise, build your sea miles on a Milebuilder, or do something really spectacular and come along to a Festival or Special Event. For those who fancy a challenge there's nothing quite like Pilot Cutter Racing and if it's skills building that you're after then join us on a Training Course.

We have Discovery Cruises ranging in length from 2 to 12 days and you can explore the following fabulous destinations:


  • The Isles of Scilly - White sandy beaches, amazing plants and wildlife; a slice of paradise basking in the gulf stream!

  • The Channel Islands - One of our favourite cruising grounds; stunning anchorages and interesting islands packed with history.

  • North Brittany - An amazing coastline with pretty ports, tasty French cuisine and a wonderful welcome.

  • Cornwall & Devon - Follow the Jurassic Coast into the heart of the West Country to sample the best cruising that the South Coast has to offer.

  • Solent & Dorset Coast - Our home turf is packed with gems like the New Forest and the fascinating Jurassic Coast.

Races, Festivals & Special Events


There's nothing quite like being part of an event rather than just a spectator. From regattas to festivals there's lots of traditional boats to ogle, racing to enjoy and always plenty to do ashore. Looking around aboard each others boats is encouraged and the camararderie between crews makes for unforgettable holidays.

Mile-builder Voyages

A Mile-builder voyage is perfect if you want to maximise your sea-miles AND your remaining holiday allowance. They're also a brilliant way to experience longer passages in the care of a professional skipper, and pound per mile they're a real steal.
