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 an associated YouTube channel so visit www.youTube.com/c/plymouthwelshboy to find our most recent cruises together.

John welsford dinghy

Paul Ericson posted a great piece on FaceBook recently. He talked about his Jaunty Mahia Mission with a 50k downwind sail and centreboard up most of the way. With varying winds between 15 to 25 knots, they got up to 10 knots and managed a respectable 5 knots under jib and mizzen on some stages.

Jaunty was made famous by David Perillo many years ago. anyway, enjoy.
