Sold to Joseph Gibson Timms of Morecambe

Skylark IX is sold to Joseph Gibson Timms of Morecambe, a brave character decorated for saving a sinking ship by blocking a hole with his body. He sails his new open boat 900 miles, ‘the long way round’, to
Morecambe, probably Skylark’s longest
single voyage and first trip past Dumbarton!
