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 galley box update

The second galley box is finished. Straps and all. It will go on on extended voyages of 3 days plus and be strapped into the starboard side of the centreboard forward cockpit area. The paintwork is rather rough - a few sags and runs - not a very professional finish  - but I was hurrying as I am under starters orders to build 'her indoors'  a new bird table! It is merely a box, nothing fancy. A tray type lid and tall enough to hold bottles of water if need be although I tend to strap in a 25 lt jerry can with a tap for long voyages.

Arwen has two galley boxes now and if you use the search bar for searching this blog you will find previous posts about the building of the cooking box.
