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

An interesting new magazine....Barnacle Bill

try this one.......crowd source funded, first edition. I like it. Somehow the editors tapped into my I am going to read it cover to cover over next few days and then I will decide whether to subscribe. First impressions, I like what I see

I wonder if it is possible to buy a copy of the first issue to get a feel for it? Had a look at the website for prices but can only find a 12 month subscription at £79 , bit steep to find its not for me although i do like the look of it. I am obliged to you for introducing it everyone who follows your blog. Regards Stuart Honeyford.

Stuart, the subscription is reduced to £12 for twelve monthly editions.......I would suggest it is probably a bargain.
