To the Baltic and Back in a season

Bob and Sue Garrett have had their own yacht (based in Chichester harbour) since 2005 having previously crewed and chartered regularly.

In “To The Baltic and Back in a Season” Bob and Sue will illustrate their trip, which went as far as St Petersburg, focussing on the journey there and back, many of the places they visited and events they experienced. They will also talk about the practicalities of planning, navigation, berthing, customs, weather etc.

The six month trip to the Baltic followed their retirement and was their first experience of being on board for over a month.
