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

Life is meant for sharing

A coke zero with ice and lemon slice, a roof top terrace bar with comfy chairs, two divinely tasting forentinas and a view across roof tops towards the setting sun.

The silhouettes of cathedrals, the bells of churches ringing out across the city at sunset. A sky of purples, pinks, greens and blues. Below the noise of life, traffic, car horns, the odd siren.

It doesn't get any better than this.........well yes it does..........when you are sat next to the one you love and your best friend rolled into one......sunsets are definitely made for sharing cuddled up with the missus on spectacular rooftops

I agree with all your sentiments here - but where is this? It looks like somewhere in North Africa?
