Seems that Phillip is a bit of an all round winner.

Actually I've won that twice, yes twice!

First was a chart plotter with no charts that was soon superseded by technology.
Second was a camera and a movie camera.

I used all three in my trip north in 2011 but all three are now considered primitive as far as what we can do today even with our phones!!!!!
All have been retired but they were very welcome when I won them.

Today I tend not to enter that comp as I might win again :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Sent from White Cliffs, land sailing!
