AR22-21 August Bank Holiday Trad Taster Weekend


Experience a gaff-rig sailing adventure aboard the Amelie Rose. Sail a 24 ton gaffer and explore the bustling waters and havens of the Solent.

Adventure Summary

Join us aboard the Amelie Rose as we set sail from the beautiful Beaulieu River to spend the August Bank Holiday exploring the best that the Solent has to offer.

Stretching from Weymouth and Poole in the West to Chichester Harbour in the East our home waters have a little of everything. From bustling harbours like Yarmouth to quiet anchorages like Newtown Creek there’s plenty to discover and a Traditional Taster Weekend gives you the perfect opportunity to see what sailing Amelie Rose is all about.

Itinerary

You’ll be joining us in Beaulieu on the Friday night, where you can enjoy a meal with us and meet the other guest crew. With food and introductions complete you can find yourself a bunk, stow your gear and have a look around the boat. Before we head to our beds we’ll have a chat about plans for the following day and the weekend ahead.

After breakfast on Saturday morning we’ll head downriver and out into the Solent where you’ll spend the day learning how to sail the boat. Lunch will be served either at anchor or underway, and in the afternoon we’ll head to our overnight destination. Typical haunts include; Yarmouth, Chichester Harbour, Poole, Studland Bay, Newtown Creek, Cowes and Alum Bay and we may stay at anchor or be alongside in harbour depending on what we all feel like.

Sunday will see us head off to another destination – with more sailing to be done and more havens to investigate.

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.
