AR19-02 Escape Easter Taster Cruise


Get away from the Easter madness at home with peaceful long weekend cruise from our base on the lovely Beaulieu River.

Adventure Summary

Whether you are looking for a chance to get away from the chaos of an Easter Weekend at home, or want to take family/friends for an unusual Easter celebration join us aboard the Amelie Rose as we set sail from the beautiful Beaulieu River.

Depending on the weather we might flit about in the Solent, head to the West Country, or even nip across the Channel to Cherbourg & the Channel Islands. Wherever we end up you’re bound to feel more virtuous tucking into your Easter Eggs having pulled on a few ropes and taken the tiller of a 24 ton Pilot Cutter.

Itinerary

You’ll be joining us at Bucklers Hard on the Beaulieu River on the Thursday night, where you can enjoy a meal at the Master Builders Hotel and meet the other guest crew. With food and introductions complete we’ll move to the boat where you’ll find yourself a bunk, stow your gear and have a look around the boat. Before we head to our bunks we’ll usually have a chat about potential destinations for the following few days. With four days to play with many destinations are possible but we’ll aim to mix some nights at anchor under the stars as well as stopovers in busy harbours and havens.

After breakfast on Saturday morning we’ll head downriver and out into the Solent. From there on in our itinerary will be up to the weather gods and the choices of the crew. The Channel Islands are a mere 14 hours or so away, so St Peter Port and Sark are within range, as is Cherbourg if we fancy checking out the French take on Easter Celebrations. There are plenty of options closer to home however so we may end up on one of our (in)famous Solent Pub Cruises or even running along the Jurassic Coast to Weymouth and beyond.

By Sunday we’ll be looking to head back towards the Solent to ensure that we can get the tides right for our re-entry into the Beaulieu River. Depending on what the tide is up to, Monday may start early or include a lie in but there’ll be breakfast to eat and sailing to be done before we head back to the Beaulieu River by mid afternoon. After packing up gear, our guest crews often decamp back to the pub for a farewell drink before heading home.
