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

Down at Sennen

Sennen is my favourite part of Cornwall - that part of the tip of our fair nation west of Penzance, where you can stare across the seas to the Scilly Isles. 

I am so lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the country. 

Lucky to live where I do

SWMBO and I managed to escape for two separate weeks in Florrie, our caravan, towed by Zebedee, our 4 x 4 yeti.

Our first trip was down to Tregurrian on the north Cornwall coast, just outside of Newquay. Stunning cliff scenery.
