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

a few photos from this week's sail with 'Her indoors'

sliding past the coastline of Penlee Point at the mouth of Cawsand Bay

that top boom has a mind of its own and frequently manages to change the side of the mast it is if by magic..........irritating or what!

Cawsand on the left and Kingsand on the right.........that be Cornwall over there

ghosting along the side of Mt Edgecumbe country park

Fort Picklecombe off the starboard bow

homeward bound............Plymouth Hoe straight ahead
