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".

Power boating

I have just spent a lovely week with two colleagues and twelve students who were doing their level 2 power boat RYA certificates. Three days doing the course, one day doing a passage around the sound and up the Tamar and a day of fun kayaking and games.

The course was run by PDSSA, the Plymouth and Devon Schools Sailing Association and it was outstanding. Such a high level of instruction. Instructors were fun, knowledgeable, caring, enthusiastic and so patient. I cannot recommend them too highly. Some of the best instructors I have had the privilege of working with.

There is no doubt in my mind that we will be doing it again next year. Well done to Ade and his team, Darren, Barry, Nick and Ben. Thanks guys for an exceptional week.
