Baltic and back in a season, by Bob and Sue Garrett

Bob and Sue were advised that they couldn’t do the Baltic justice in a single season, but decided to go anyway and see as many countries as possible. They sailed 3,800 miles, mostly day sailing, and visited nine countries, going as far as St Petersburg on Intrepid, a Dufour 365. They spent 182 days on board and will talk about why they did it, their preparation, the route, the practicalities and the places they saw.
