Boat Handling under Engine – Part Six: “You want me to park WHERE?!”

In the previous article we had a look at parking up when the touchdown zone was a nice long stretch of pontoon, but what about when it’s a wall, piles or even (shudder) a finger berth? As our series on boat handling under engine comes to an end, Skipper Nic looks at a few of the more, esoteric, landings we might be required to perform.

2021/2020 The year that sort of was, and the year that definitely wasn’t…

What a bizarre 18 months! From the anticipation of preparing the boat for her 12th season to a summer spent hiding under the winter cover fixing deck seams, to the planning (and replanning, and replanning, and replanning) of an ever-shrinking 13th year, to finally getting to sea again but with just one major destination available – Skipper Nic looks back on the 2020’s so far…

Amelie Rose’s Spaghetti Puttanesca (and bonus “Cheats” Garlic Bread)

There’s much to love about Spaghetti Puttanesca. It’s tasty, it’s incredibly fast to make, it’s easy to turn it vegetarian (or even vegan), and apart from the onion and garlic (both of which store pretty well on board) it’s entirely made from store-cupboard ingredients. We often have this on arrival after a passage because the sauce can be knocked up in advance of landfall and then the whole thing comes together in minutes but still looks and tastes amazing.

Why choose Amelie Rose for your cruise to the Isles of Scilly?

The Isles of Scilly are a stunning destination, but getting there, staying there and moving around the islands can be a complicated and expensive business. Skipper Nic makes the case for why a trip to the Islands aboard the Amelie Rose is the best of all the available options and provides you with maximum bang for your buck.

Amelie Rose’s Quick Veggie Curry

This simple vegetarian curry makes for brilliant warming passage food – and is flexible enough to soak up any “leftover” veggies from the fridge. Although there’s no reason that you couldn’t throw some chicken in too, the veggie version is pretty quick to cook making it a regular on Amelie Rose’s menu plans. We normally pair it up with some mini naan’s and Amelie Rose’s Idiot Proof Rice but it could equally well serve as a veggie side to a meaty curry or a dahl if you want to push the boat out.
