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".

the sad news that Ken Duxbury has passed away.......

Sadly, at the age of 92, Ken Duxbury has passed away. With his wife B, he sailed a drascombe from Greece back to the Uk. The Lugworm Chronicles is the book I am reading now. An obituary can be found at the above website address

Sad news. I read the chronicles. A great book. I'd recommend it.

Sad news indeed. Ken taught me to sail when I was very young, and gave me a love of sailing and the sea which still informs my life to this day.

It is sad. I am reading Lugworm Chronicles at the moment. A great loss to the sailing community and I know all our thoughts and sympathies are with B and family
