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".

I rarely post.....

about boats which are non John Welsford, but I came across this video and it is worth watching. Enjoy.

Hi Steve,
Doing allright thank you. Survived Mathew but still feeling effects of that blow.
Boatbuilding has restarted on the Seagull, mostly finishing; fibre, fair and paint. Nice.

Ha. Was thinking about you yesterday and Matthew. Much damage?

Half of our beautiful beaches were washed away. And we were lucky with the storm staying 150km North of us. We still have its swells albeit dampened. The beaches will be grown back. I pray for Haiti, Cuba and Jamaica... It is a monster.

Glad you ok and yes same feeling for other islands. Watching from afar, about to teach tropical storms to GCSE group, it's called topicality but always feel uneasy when looking at real events happening in the moment. On other hand it does raise their awareness about good fortune, where they live on planet etc. glad you are ok
