Part memoir, part Irish travels, part lunatic endeavour, Jasper Winn's account of paddling round Ireland in a kayak, during one the worst summers in recent history, is both hugely inspiring and entertaining.

Synopsis

Paddle A Long Way Around Ireland by Jasper Wynn

A journey of the mind - as well as out at sea, amid the basking sharks, seals, fulmars and waves the size of wardrobes. And while storms rage, Jasper seeks refuge in bars, playing guitar and talking, as only the Irish can, with everyone along the way. All of which makes for a unique inside view of the new and old Ireland, from a man never quite sure if he'll come through the next day in one piece.

Reviews

'Here's a trip for a madcap - funny, inspiring and unputdownable'
Chris Stewart

About the Author

Jasper Wynn moved to Ireland at age twelve, with his inventor father, and instead of going to school he learnt to ride horses and play traditional music with the locals. This shaped a life of travel, crossing the Atlas with nomadic Berbers, rollerblading the Netherlands, and fronting the Channel Four horse culture series Rawhides. He is a frequent contributor to the Sunday Times, Guardian and GQ, Conde Nast and Wanderlust and has a column in the Irish Examiner.
