Arwen's meanderings

Hi everyone and welcome to my dinghy cruising blog about my John Welsford designed 'navigator' named Arwen. Built over three years, Arwen was launched in August 2007. She is a standing lug yawl 14' 6" in length. This blog records our dinghy cruising voyages together around the coastal waters of SW England.
Arwen has an associated YouTube channel so visit to find our most recent cruises and click subscribe.
On this blog you will find posts about dinghy cruising locations, accounts of our voyages, maintenance tips and 'How to's' ranging from rigging standing lug sails and building galley boxes to using 'anchor buddies' and creating 'pilotage notes'. I hope you find something that inspires you to get out on the water in your boat. Drop us a comment and happy sailing.
Steve and Arwen

Dinghy cruising: Camera gear for vlogging and doing personal video diaries

Some people have asked via FaceBook, blog and my YouTube channel for me to share what equipment I use to create my videos about Arwen. So here is the first contribution to answering this question. A video summary.
It is longer than my normal ones so I would say don't watch it unless you are genuinely interested in what I use and because you are thinking about doing videos yourself, or you are a vlogger and want to see what gear someone else uses.

My equipment has been accumulated over several years, as and when I could afford it. Some of it is outdated but still quite functional. Anyway, here it is. As always thoughts, observations and comments always welcome.

At some stage I will do a post about how I set about doing some of my videos - the thought processes behind the filming.
