Sue and Bob Garrett

Baltic and Back in a Season



Bob and Sue will tell us about their 6 month tour of the Baltic, starting from and returning to the Solent. They spent 182 days on board and visited 9 countries, getting as far as St Petersburg. They will talk about their previous experience, how they prepared, the route, why they did it and practicalities – everything you need to know for your sailing trip to the Baltic..


Notes from Sue & Bob, following the talk:

“Bobbing to the Baltic” – Martin Edge
“Skagerrak and Back” – also Martin Edge (not so useful in the Baltic but passage there from Scotland)
both the above available as kindle books.
