Amelie Rose

Amelie Rose is a replica of a 19th Century wooden Pilot Cutter and was launched in 2009. She is licensed to carry up to 10 passengers. Built by Working Sail in Cornwall using traditional methods, she has worked as a successful holiday and training charter vessel and in 2012 starred in “The Hungry Sailors” on ITV. She is based on the Beaulieu River in the heart of the New Forest and sails the English Channel, from the Solent to the Isles of Scilly, Channel Islands and Brittany.

This year Amelie Rose is being used as a project to tackle sea plastic pollution. This is a fantastic non-profit project. For more information and to support the team, take a look at www.cleanseasodyssey.org. Nick and Rebecca say ‘We started on June 2nd and are sailing Amelie Rose with a volunteer crew anti-clockwise around the channel. On the way we visit ports, harbours and festivals to meet with local people, do some beach cleans and film stories about plastic pollution in the area and what local people are doing about it. The project is about raising awareness that plastic pollution in the sea is not just a problem in far away oceans but also in our own seas. Findings are all published.

At Sea Salts, Amelie Rose and her crew will welcome folk aboard so they can look around the exhibits and information boards and chat about the real threat of plastic pollution.
