The Real Phyllis Found!

The Real Phyllis
Fredrick and daughter Phyllis.

Out of the blue and while busy sorting out everything for the return of "Phyllis" from Largs to Deganwy a comment was received from the website.  It was almost two weeks before viewing the message but when I read it I was so excited.

Now able to email Allan, he was happy to send me a few photos.  One of his grandfather Fredrick Whiteley with his mother Phyllis on a later boat "Chance" owned by the family.

Plus two other pictures when he and his wife visited Largs Marina before I brought her back down to Deganwy.

It's a shame that we never got to meet, but Allan tells me that the family still holiday in the cottage on Hilbre Island in the River Dee estuary. You never know we might get to meet one day!

About Kevin

I've been sailing on the yacht 'Phyllis' since her launch in July 2010. Not a 'rag and stick' sailor originally so I've had to learn new skills during this time. She's a lovely, and cosy, little boat who has taken me all around the Irish Sea and the countries on its shores.
