Arwen's meanderings

Hi everyone and welcome to my dinghy cruising blog about my John Welsford designed 'navigator' named Arwen. Built over three years, Arwen was launched in August 2007. She is a standing lug yawl 14' 6" in length. This blog records our dinghy cruising voyages together around the coastal waters of SW England.
Arwen has an associated YouTube channel so visit to find our most recent cruises and click subscribe.
On this blog you will find posts about dinghy cruising locations, accounts of our voyages, maintenance tips and 'How to's' ranging from rigging standing lug sails and building galley boxes to using 'anchor buddies' and creating 'pilotage notes'. I hope you find something that inspires you to get out on the water in your boat. Drop us a comment and happy sailing.
Steve and Arwen

Just realised something about the videos

Having just reviewed my first efforts, I've realised that the video picture alternates between my two video clips on some quick clarification - the first video shows me and my sister; the second video is longer with some captions and descriptions of Arwen.......and some shots of my son, Sam, who is a very reluctant sailor. Thank God my daughter loves boats. Here's a picture of Abbie at the helm........she too has just gained RYA levels 1 and 2......she's better than me as humiliating!
