2 in a boat brings you the sailing and travel world of Suzanne and Andrew on their aged yacht Crystelle Venture. Join them as they prepare for their longest sail yet, from Dartmouth, UK to St Petersburg, Russia. Across the North Sea and around the Baltic this summer, a round trip of about 3000 nautical miles. The novice and the old salt. All the gear and no idea? What on earth (or on water) could go wrong...?
Join Suzanne and Andrew, newly landed on the island of Bornholm in Denmark after their overnight sail from Germany.

Just where have our 2 in a boat washed up now? They've spotted submarines, been boarded by the Dutch authorities, and now want to buy concrete sheep. Listen in to find out what on earth/on sea, has been going on.
