Thursday 23 May and we left Deganwy, in remarkable weather with flat seas, all the way to the Mersey to Liverpool Marina. Arriving in good time for the start of the Festival (Friday 31 May). Moved the boat the previous Thursday from the Marina to Albert Dock, now renamed the Royal Albert Dock. Phyllis remained on static display along with the other boats from the Nobby Owners Association.
Seven boats attended the event in the Royal Albert Dock, including Spray, Phyllis, Comrades, Sara Ann, Jean, Hearts of Oak, and the Anna Elldi. With no sailing programme, it was a social weekend for the Association. It was good to catch up with everyone.
It was Tuesday 4 June when we all left Liverpool to return to Deganwy. Some five boats, Comrades, Sara Ann, Phyllis, Spray and Anna Elldi departed the River Mersey back to Conwy, with Anna Elldi returning to the Menai Straits.
