Sail, Learn and Enjoy the Amelie Rose Experience

 

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 Cruise, 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.

Amelie Rose at her new base on the Beaulieu River Amelie Rose and the beautiful Beaulieu
