    Absolutely dire a good opportunity missed. Even if you know nothing about boats it was not at all entertaining or engaging.

    it looked like they had a couple days sailing with plenty of footage then edited it together, there were some real howlers on the continuity front.

    Passge from Bradwell to Ramsgate showed a cartooned track going up the coast towards Harwich and ‘outside’ but immediately cut to them crossing the Spitway.

    That is an hour of my life I won’t get back!

    We yachtsmen are not the target audience.

    There was also a shot supposedly in Bradwell, but the shot included a cliff with houses on top. I am pretty sure Bradwell is nowhere any cliffs.

    Indeed a few continuity issues.

    Also, what was this bit about the busy route out of Felixstowe. They were going from Bradwell to Ramsgate. If they were worried about Felixstowe traffic, they really have a navigation problem.

    I baled out after 30 mins would have been sooner but missus wanted to give it a chance. It was absolutely pathetic.

    I think I have just had my fill of ‘this is a good wheeze let’s get a couple of celebrities to have a bit of fun while 3 million idiots watch the vacuous goings on and we sell a shed load of advertising’.

    Well I enjoyed it-!

    I thought it was funny with all the nonsensical drama - and it was particularly enjoyable that even the non east coast or sailors in the room could see what nonsense it was! We laughed a lot! Great to see boats and leisure sailing on telly and fun to spot places you know and to be able to spot the crap. I’ll probsbly enjoy it much less when they get to places I know nothing about (nearly everywhere else)

    I'd like to watch it despite the reviews! How do you do catch-up on Ch5? My smart telly gets me to My5 but it only seems to offer a limited number of progs, not including this one.

    (Edit.....found I can watch it directly on my computer.)

    I wouldn't bother.
    That was by far the worst programme involving sailing and the East Coast that I have ever seen. Apart from the yacht, about which we were given no info, there was nothing worth watching. The continuity was dire, there was a clip of Ramsgate in the Bradwell footage and when they eventually did arrive in Ramsgate the filming of the entrance looked as if it had been shot on a phone...
    The production team and the so-called celebrities should be ashamed of themselves... won't be watching any more of that rubbish.
