Mickey reminded me of this. I'm half way through reading this book (The Unlikely Voyage of Jack de Crow) which was recommended by someone at work about a guy sailing his Mirror dinghy across Europe. Thought it might appeal to some on this forum since many like taking their AI's on on trips.

Truly hilarious books are rare. Even rarer are those based on real events. Join A.J. Mackinnon, your charming and eccentric guide, on an amazing boat called Jack de Crow.

Equipped with his cheerful optimism and a pith helmet, this Australian Odysseus in a dinghy travels from the borders of North Wales to the Black Sea - 4,900 kilometres over salt and fresh water, under sail, at the oars, or the end of a tow-rope - through twelve countries, 282 locks and numerous trials and adventures, including an encounter with Balkan pirates. Along the way he experiences the kindness of strangers, gets very lost, and perfects the art of slow travel.

I have read a review about it that the author himself is not happy with his work despite of the fact that it is one of his finest works. I am happy with how they gave reviews about this book. They are all convincing but I need to read this so that I can have my own reviews too.
