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

I'm sorry..........

I didn't get to do my jolly up the Tamar. Guilt set in and I spent the day working to get ready for the start of the new term tomorrow. It is funny but I've slept really well all summer but since Friday I have been restless and barely got any sleep. Funny that isn't it.  It is like returning and awakening to some sub-human state after having hibernated!

Anyway I will try and get a sail in this weekend and will report back on it. Thanks for being so tolerant. In the meantime back to lesson preparation. Hur!
