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".

Sam Goodchild

is a west country skipper in the Solitaire du Figaro. He's 24 yrs old and is flying the flag for Plymouth and Falmouth.  His boat is 'Team Plymouth' and Sam wants to focus world attention on our fair city. Its his fourth year in the event and he is already the UK's best placed competitor since the one design rule was introduced in 1991.

Sam says in our local paper that the biggest challenge is looking after your body as well as making the boat go fast.

Well we all wish him luck in our city. Its going to prove to be quite an event!
