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

What an enjoyable weekend.  Lovely weather and a ride out on 'Stacey', our Motovespa 125 super. Those of you following the blog will know that we acquired her and restored her. Since then we have been out and about on her.
Yesterday was a trip over the moors to Tavistock; a lovely coffee up a little alley way at a hidden away gem of a café and then a return trip back across Dartmoor.
Wonderful. I forget how lucky I am to live in such a stunning part of the UK.
If you can't see he video below, go to YouTube, search plymouthwelshboy.....all one word.....and videos of Stacey should pop up.
