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

I love these and really appreciate the effort you put in to make the videos available. As an armchair, but aspiring, dinghy cruiser, I'd love to 'watch' you do some passage planning and see what level of detail you go into regarding weather, tides and routes.
Enjoy the Season!

BTW, I had to answer 5 'I am not a robot picture selection screens before I was trusted to make this post. AM I really that robotic! :-)

I am so sorry you had to. I have no idea why that is though. I have made s note and when I do my next voyage I will do a bit about the passage planning as well
