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.

In the next few weeks....

due to other circumstances the Falmouth trip will be taking place but exactly when is .....err.......a little difficult to pin down precisely.
What will be happening is that for various reasons it will be a four day trip. I will be sailing up to Malpas, overnighting at Smugglers inn. Then there will be trips to various pubs, up various creeks and probably an overnight in percuil somewhere.
Then there will be a sail across to Helford and an overnight at tremayne quay before heading back to Mylor and carick roads.

I also intend fitting in the plymouth Classic boat rally and possibly an overnight trip to Salcombe as well.

I'm looking forward to some good sailing this summer.
