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

Merry Christmas

Well another year has passed and so I wish you and all your families a 'Merry Christmas' and a 'Happy New Year'.  If the weather improves from gales I will try and get out sailing over the New Year break and post a video.

May all of you have a good festive break.

Same to you with knobs on! Sorry for late greetings, but I'm just recovering from the festivities and finding a calm moment to catch up on my favourite blogs.
Please keep it going throughout 2016 (and beyond!). Enjoy Hogmanay!
