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.
Arwen has a YouTube channel of her own. Search "plymouthwelshboy".

A John Welsford Navigator......

is a lovely boat! Nough said really!


That anticipation and excitement having rigged the boat and just about ready to leave the pontoon.....
 
The joy and satisfaction that comes with sailing a boat you built yourself, even if it is sailing it badly!
 


the intensity of wind and spray as you follow your course
 
 
Some screen shots taken from recent video clips on the GoPro Hero 2. Something else I have just learned to do.
Here is looking forward to escaping up the Tamar next week, all being well.
