Arwen's meanderings

Hi everyone and welcome to my new blog. My name is Steve and i am the lucky owner of a John Welsford designed 'navigator' named Arwen. I built her over three years with the help of my father, father-in-law and two children. She was launched in August 2007 at Queen Anne's battery marina in the barbican area of Plymouth. This blog is a record of our voyages together around SW England.

I caught a posting on the JW forum the other day which sent a link to this website where there are two video clips apparently showing two navigators with different rigs. Worth a look. For those here in the UK rain, cold and misery be prepared to be envious; very, very envious!

Paul's post raised awareness of some video clips of a navigator using a balanced lug cat ketch rig; based in Perth, Western Australia .  The C-Fleet from the Old Gaffers group in Perth Western Australia sailed out to Garden Island then on to Carnac Island on the last day of 2012.


The video can be viewed here

The photos od the rigs can be viewed here

Doesn't the weather, clearance seas and lovely wildlife make you envious?

Steve
