Two legendary BBC journalists set sail to explore the most spectacular, challenging and exciting coastlines Britain has to offer in this unique boating adventure.

Michael Buerk and John Sergeant are passionate amateur sailors but with very different experiences under their belts – Michael loves sailing the Scottish coast and John the delights of Cornwall. In this authored travelogue they come together to share their passion for sailing as they take on the entire British coastline in just six weeks!

Along the way they must master their seafaring skills, meet the locals and survive on their wits. With no money and only a week's food provisions on board, they must learn to fish and cook whilst enjoying the local historical sites and eccentric tourist traps.

This is the ultimate boy’s road trip at sea. Full of laughs, fun and a bit of danger!
