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".

Rolex Fastnet update

I downloaded a free app to my IPad which shows me the positioning of all the boats in the race  and I've been listening to Fastnet FM radio as well.
Rather jolly and exciting!

The first boats back will be tomorrow morning around 6am. Most are expected back on Friday. The high pressure which sat over this part of the country today has rather slowed things down. However, with heavy rain fronts moving in, I suspect that happy situation won't last long!!
