Book Description

The free spirit, Clarissa Vincent, has allowed us to vicariously
experience her sailing adventures through The Voyage of Storm Petrel.
Book One - Britain to Senegal Alone in a Boat.
Book Two - Gambia and Europe Alone in a Boat.
She followed her dream of sailing alone out of Bristol, UK to Spain and Portugal, boldly extended her voyage to include Senegal and Gambia, Africa.
Book Two takes the reader 230 miles up the River Gambia, then an
arduous sail to the Atlantic islands of Madeira and the Canaries,
where she found a best friend in a dog called 'Loba' and they carried on together to Mediterranean Spain and the inland waterways of France.
Clarissa is an amazing person of diverse talent, a true inspiration to
fulfill our dreams, live our lives and enjoy them to the fullest, just
as we should.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent travel writing 13 April 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed Clarissa's first book, so couldn't wait for this second book to be completed. I love the way the book is written, her writing style is really free and you can even feel the ambiance of the places visited. Great descriptions of the flora and fauna and of course the people and places visited. The technical information about sailing was also appreciated. Fantastic travel writing. Hope that when Clarissa does get her bike on the road she lets us go along for the ride with her next book.

What an adventure! A well told tale. Not quite resulting in me selling the house and buying a boat but the next best thing - wishing I had done so ...
