    starting back in December last year We remember getting these photos seeing the size and strength of the ribs of one of these vessels made us appreciate all the more just how strong the finished articles are It was also the first time we could start to get a feel for the scale of the interior space The second group of photos were our Christmas present from Luke the guys As you ll see they show the completed framing and if you look very carefully on the 4th shot you might just make out the Garboard Plank at the very bottom sat in the rabbet cut into the keel earlier As mentioned in the intro we ve also been working hard to figure out how to put the video clips that we shot at the Pilot Cutter Review online You can see the results of our efforts in our new Gallery section You ll need to register and sign in and you may need to download a little Microsoft gadget called Silverlight but the instructions are all there and it s very simple The results are well worth while with shots of sailing onboard Agnes Luke s own boat and some footage of Jolie Brise from just before the start of racing on the second day at the Pilot Cutter review There s also some other shots from our travels around the South Coast and we ll get more stuff up there as we capture it More shots of the build as soon as we can get them online All the best Nick Melisa www topsail adventures co uk Back Pilot Cutter Charter Topsail Adventures offer skippered charter sailing holidays aboard Pilot Cutter Amelie Rose our replica 1850 s Isles of Scilly Pilot Cutter Join us for an adventure sailing

  • Topsail Adventures Ltd - Amelie Rose and the Learning Cliff
    in the city and Amelie Rose was still very much a work in progress It was a very peculiar feeling for both of us when on the 23 rd April we left our desks for the last time and headed off to Cornwall for the launch The next few weeks were pretty stressful as we struggled to get her fully comissioned and then faced the task of sailing a broadly unknown boat over 170 miles back to our base in Poole We described to friends later it was less a learning curve and more a learning cliff as we figured out not only how to sail her but how to look after and cater for our guests too Still as the weeks progressed we got better and better and by the time we returned to Falmouth for the Pilot Cutter Review in June we felt much more in control Managing first across the line on the Sunday race was a real bonus and one of many highpoints in a year stuffed full of firsts and incredible experiences Most of all what sticks out in our minds however is the wonderful people that Amelie Rose draws in Sometimes met on a dockside sometimes via the wonders of Google she appears to have a talent for presenting us with lovely new sailing companions wherever she goes And what of Amelie Rose herself how has she turned out Well all boats have niggles and wrinkles personality we prefer to call it but overall we re incredibly pleased Luke creates a beautiful and seaworthy boat which for a gaffer sails brilliantly On deck everything is in the right place and makes sense whilst down below I think we got the layout bang on She s an open plan boat and this has fitted with the way our crews have bonded and worked together The systems we have installed have all worked a treat the stove and heating system are perfect on a chilly night The fuel cell keeps our batteries charged with economy and ecologically the seawater cooled fridge is left on permanently without killing the power and the GN Espace cooker is second to none a delight to use Best of all most of this happens under the covers which we think helps to preserve her authenticity So where next Onwards and outwards of course We ve got a great year sheduled in 2010 more of which in the next newsletter and we re looking forward to sharing it with the many friends we made last year as well as with the new ones we re sure to make this year Bookings are up and many of the early season trips are selling out so don t leave it too late to bag your place Valentines Vouchers Would your special someone love a trip on Amelie Rose We ve had a lot of celebrations on board Amelie Rose and many folks have brought Vouchers from us to give as gifts so we thought

  • Topsail Adventures Ltd - September Stunners & August Adventures with Amelie Rose
    a feel for pushing Amelie Rose along to windward Birthday Bonanza Tuesday found Amelie Rose once again in the Solent playing with the Cowes Week crowds as we picked up Ben and 11 guests from Lymington and took them out for a daysail to celebrate his 60th birthday The day was grey and windy but the rain mainly held off and we enjoyed brisk sailing up the Solent toward Cowes After a lunch of pizza hove to off Cowes we headed back down the western Solent with Amelie Rose effortlessly tacking her way up through Hurst Narrows and out along the Needles Channel Then as the tide turned beneath us it was time to head back to Lymington Another 60th Birthday boy joined us for the end of Cowes Week this time Merv and 5 friends Having joined us in Poole they were soon learning the ropes and before long we found ourselves in amoungst the Cowes Week racing once again as we entered the Solent bound for Cowes itself Friday is the last day of racing for most of the fleets at Cowes so it s traditional for there to be a big fireworks display which this year was further spiced by a rumoured visit from the Red Arrows So it was that we found ourselves at anchor off Cowes enjoying a glass of birthday bubbly and laughing at Merv s attempt to fly a kite from the stern of Amelie Rose when sure enough our tranquility was disturbed by the arrival of the RAF s display team What a fantastic show At times so low that they appeared to be skimming the masts of the gathered throng and lasting for what seemed like an age they really did live up to their reputation After this the Cowes Fireworks whilst the biggest display on the South Coast was almost a let down We awoke at anchor in Osbourne bay in time for quick swim around the boat before heading off down Solent to Yarmouth where the Brithday team had an appointment at Salty s which is a bit of an institution amoungst visitors to this bustling port On Saturdays in the Summer there s an entertainer who invariably gets the crowd singing along dancing on the tables and otherwise taking part in his show This visit was no exception and it was the perfect end to another great day of sailing Merv s great run of weather continued on Sunday as we re crossed the bay picking up what seemed like a ton of mackerel with our trolling line enroute Fresh grilled fish is fast becoming a favourite on board as the flavour is better the fresher the fish and there really is no way to get fish any fresher than this from line to plate in less than 30 minutes Amelie s August Adventures Next up were Neil Lisa and Harry whose intended adventure along the World Heritage Jurassic Coast to Weymouth was unfortunately scuppered by contrary wind

    engine a couple of times to ensure that we made landfall at slack water but the passage was otherwise without incident The next day we had time for a quick walk up Victoria Street to the centre of the town before setting off at slack water through the infamous Swinge toward Guernsey After a pleasant sail we approached St Peter Port via the Little Russell and were soon at anchor in Havelet Bay a brief dinghy ride away from the Guernsey Sailing Club who were hosting the race The next morning dawned rather grey and we were concerned that we may not be able to even find Sark as it drifted in and out of the murk but by the time we had won our anchor and thrown up some canvas the visibility had cleared and although we were rather late across the line we had a great sail down to the southern most tip of the island Punching tide up the Eastern coast took rather a long time but the thrash back down through the Big Russell and then back up to St Peter Port was great fun as Amelie Rose surged along with the cap rails awash After showers ashore we congregated at the Castle for the prize giving and end of regatta fish and chip supper and a few drinks at the sailing club The next morning dawned fair and we took the opportunity to head back over to Sark to enjoy an evening at anchor in La Greve de la Ville although we discovered to our chagrin that Sunday licensing laws on the island meant that we couldn t get a beer there when we went ashore Ah well we live and learn A deteriorating forecast convinced us to head back across the channel to the
