After two idle years she leaves Bristol today for a final polish up in Sheerness. All shipshape again and anew cruising season lies ahead. Well done to all who helped with this worthwhile restoration.

The vessel arrived at Bideford yesterday evening from Ilfracombe and stayed for about 45 mins and returned to Ilfracombe . Her first visit for 10 years.
