    First of a new series.

    This episode covers Suffolk, to Ramsgate, including Bradwell and West Mersea.

    Might be worth watching on these cold dark nights.

    Can’t see why they didn’t give the job to Dylan Winter.
    Well its obvious why Dylan was not given the job; Dylan keeps turning left you know, this fella MBuerk keeps turning right ?

    Dire and disappointing. Flawed too.

    Towing a gracious sailing boat like that is an affront to her dignity. Might be a reflection of the production team.

    I wonder if the yacht's crew faked the engine breakdown to get some respite from the celebs, camera crew, producer etc.

    Not very good, was it?

    What a dismal piece of television. Beautiful boat and though. And as Roger said, wtf was all that business about a tow to Brightlingsea.
    Perhaps someone forgot to turn the sea cock on and seized the engine resulting in a huge filming schedule issue. Or more likely just no wind that week
    Lots of faces blurred out ala google streetview. Seemed like a lot of tv “jeopardy” cobblers too.

    As a matter of interest, how many people would the television company send on assignment like this; in addition to the celebs?

    While they were telling us they had no engine and were drifting out of control, there seemed to be an awful lot of prop wash visible!

    Thanks all, me and my other half were looking forward to watching this over the weekend on catch up....

    The Irish stubbornness within me, I will endure it.

    God that was bad. Sooo bad. Awful unfunny dialogue. And all that mugging about the scary shallow Black Deep. If you need a name to conjure with for purposes of telly, couldn’t they tell the truth and go with SW Sunk? Oh, and the fact that it was taking them so long to sail from Brightlingsea to Bradwell that they went for lunch in West Mersea. And then cooked dinner during the long slog from Mersea to Bradwell.
