Enda O'Coineen Launches His Sailing Book 'Journey to the Edge' in Belfast

6th December 2019

No Alibis on Botantic Avenue in Belfast was the venue for the launch of Enda O’Coineen’s latest book, Journey to the Edge writes Betty Armstrong.

This cosy venue owned by David Torrans was filled with friends and the several large panels depicting aspects of the book were an eye-catching feature among the hundreds of other books in the store.

Enda told of his inspiration and motivation to undertake the challenging Vendee Globe, and the book is a captivating account of life before and after the event. (I had 30 pages read on the train home!)

The book is dedicated to the Atlantic Youth Trust Charity, founded by Enda with a mission to connect young people with the ocean, adventure and environment.

Journey to the Edge: An Amazing Story of Risk-Taking in Business and Adventure, by Enda O’Coineen, is available from the Afloat shop at €14.99.
