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".

one man, one boat, one ocean, three urban places!

They started with a race warm up from St Malo to Plymouth. Sailors are national heroes in France and the french crowds loved it.



They arrived in Plymouth for a week of preparations........and Plymouth welcomed them. This coming weekend will be spectacular and fun

I don't know about anyone else - but I am getting quite excited. I'm such a big kid!

And then they will be gone - heading across 3500 miles to the Big Apple. Look out New York.......for the fast boats are coming your way. Have fun!
