A party of 37 men left Peel aboard a two-masted schooner called the Vixen to sail to Melbourne in Australia. The idea was that they would seek their fortune in digging for gold. We hear a poem about their departure and then entries in the diary kept by Henry Maddrell Graves about some of the events on their voyage. After 92 days - which included 21 days becalmed - they reached Melbourne on 2nd May 1853.
Our short story in Manx is about a self-confessedly boring man, rather old-fashioned and lacking in confidence, whose life is changed when he's unexpectedly tempted to buy an electric tooth brush.
