We leave tomorrow. After 9 years we finally leave Brighton and our adventure begins. We are off to Itchenor to chill out for a few days. We need it after the hectic boat preparations over the last 6 weeks. Spirit of Argo is stocked and ready to go. Quinn has had a special haircut for the occasion!


  1. Good luck…. We will be watching your progress.

    Great photo of Quinn by the way.

  2. Hi Guys,
    Its been 3 days since you left and yet no words on your blog!? You must have run aground or something, which is preventing internet connection, or it could be you are tucked around the corner in shoreham, cos you loved brighton and mr godfrey so much, that you want to come back here!
    Good luck to you all.

    • Dear Mick,
      It is true, we just could not leave Phildom behind.
      Having a few technical difficulties with the blog, especially the update features using the SSB.
      We really should have gotten it all sorted and had a play when we had internet access.
      Now we are stuck in a library in Gosport trying to order parts and sort out the blog….it will get better.
      We also discovered most of our pictures are too big to download onto the site.
      Trying to set a You Tube account and put in links.
      Wishing you the best,
