To the Baltic with Bob by Griff Rhys-Jones
Is it possible for two men to escape midlife crisis in a floating garden shed? Not if they can't get the engine working. Take two men with a rudimentary knowledge of sailing, who only went to Amsterdam because it was in a straight line, who tried to beat the Germans at their own Regatta but almost sink in the attempt. Then, add a boat that's nearly fifty and incontinent and you have TO THE BALTIC WITH BOB, an out-of-the-ordinary travel memoir by Griff Rhys Jones that charts an off-the cuff sailing trip he once made into the lockers of the Nordic soul. And just so you know, it was all Bob's idea.
