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".

Dinghy cruising down to Fowey: part two

within this video are blue box annotations and information cards
We are trying some new YouTube gizmos not used before.
Hope Arwen and I captured the mood on the day. Enjoy and if you have any comments, do let us know. We always welcome constructive feedback, sailing advice and help.

Great !, I love just watching the world go by in fowey too, the only thing I would have done different is go for a meal and pint at the Lugger Inn :-)

Thanks for posting. Cheers. Jules.

Thanks everyone. It wasa good little micro adventure and I must do more of them. Sadly school work dominates Sunday's and I haven't been ever able to clear the backlog that builds up in the week preceding the weekend. However, when I out then. LOTs of micro cruises planned for then!

The sickness? I did try eating chocolate and I think that caused it. However, next time I will try milk biscuits. Always a favourite with me as a kid when I was ill according to Mum. That and chicken soup....wierd!

Great blog and fun films, well done Steve.

We're based on the Exe, where we have a Skerry (CLC kit boat from Fyne Boats in Kendal) but would love to sail Plymouth sound one of these days.

Need to build up our inventory of cruising clobber though! You seem to be well kitted out.

Hi Andrew
I know of Fyne boats. The kit has been built up over several years to spread the costs. Much of my mountaineering kit also transferred when camp cruising. Sadly, I'm back to school now and so sailing will take a back seat but come spring Easter holidays, if you are around and down this way, let me know. Everyone should have the chance to sail Plymouth Sound 😀
