AR21-16 Jurassic Coastal Cruise


An amazing coastal voyage from Falmouth in the heart of Cornwall along the Jurassic Coast to the Beaulieu River.

Adventure Summary

Join us aboard the Amelie Rose as we set sail from Falmouth in Cornwall and run along the amazing jurassic coast to the Beaulieu River in the heart of the New Forest. This coastline is constantly changing, from the granite of Cornwall, through the red sandstone of the Devon Coast, and on to the Limestone of Dorset and you’ll get to watch it all slide by from the secure deck of a stunning Pilot Cutter.

From Dodman Point in the West you’ll be passing some of the most famous headlands and tidal races of the South Coast; Berry Head, Prawle Point, Start Point, the infamous Portland Bill and St Albans Head will bring you to Anvil point and finally to Hurst Narrows in a catalogue of navigational challenges that Amelie Rose knows so well.

This is also a fabulous way to build your sea-miles under the watchful eye of a professional skipper/instructor, or you can simply just enjoy the experience of a longer voyage aboard the Amelie Rose. There are tons of interesting harbours and anchorages to visit along the way and this run along the coast has consistently been one of the most enjoyable voyages of our previous seasons.

Itinerary

You’ll join us in Falmouth on the Saturday night. We normally meet up to enjoy a meal at the Chain Locker & Shipwrights – a bit of a local institution and known to Team Topsail as “The Falmouth Office”. 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. Before we head to our beds we’ll have a chat about plans for the following day and the week ahead.

Depending on the times of the tides we may have an early start or the morning may be fairly relaxed, but either way we’ll eventually head out of the Carrick Roads and thence to sea. The first day will likely see us bound for either Fowey or Cawsand Bay depending on the weather and tides. The rest of the route will be even more flexible but typical destinations include; The Yealm, Salcombe, Dartmouth, Portland, Studland Bay, Poole and Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight.

There may be some night-sailing involved and almost certainly a night or two at anchor as well as harbour visits. We’ll be aiming to be in the Solent by Friday night (possibly in Yarmouth). This will leave just a short hop to get you ashore in Beaulieu with plenty of time to find your way home on Saturday.
