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".

some videos of navigators in action

I occasionally trawl YouTube for videos of navigators in action. Light relief from the rigours of lesson planning, marking and self evaluation in the evenings!

Here are the fruits of tonight's 5 minute search:

Many of these videos feature Joel and his wonderful navigator 'Ellie'. As always, Joel's site is worth a visit at any time. Go to
I promise it wont be wasted time. A mine of information and inspiration. If the link fails, there is a quick link in my right hand side blog roll menu.

Thanks for the shout-out Steve. It's an interesting area where Simeon and I were sailing. Right near Anacortes, WA. Look one direction and you see this giant oil refinery with billowing smokestacks. Look the other way and you see pristine islands and the beautiful San Juans. Under our keels is an area with some of the best dungeness crab and salmon fishing around. That was a very memorable camp-cruise and Simeon's Scamp is gorgeous.
