Certainly not the first voyage for 'Phyllis' but for me in her! After her launch in July 2010 and winter berthing at Skippool Creek, it was time to venture further afield. With the impending Annual Nobby Regatta, she was booked into Liverpool Marina for the summer months. On a hot afternoon ( 21 April 2011) we set off for Liverpool via an overnight stay in Fleetwood Marina before catching a very early morning tide.
Bob Raynor, an exceptionally experienced Nobby skipper and his mate were to accompany us on her first sea trial.
