Sailing Memoir

Galway City Sailing Club would like to congratulate Joe Phelan on the publication of his sailing memoir “Sailing To Antarctica”. The book is available at select Dublin Bookshops and from

Sailing  To  Antarctica

Following 40 years working in the Irish Health Service, Joe Phelan retired. With his family grown it was time for adventure. Colleagues and friends wished him well, enthusing about all the golf he would enjoy. Joe had a different plan, he was going to sail to Antarctica…

This is the story of the journey that brought him to the cold Southern Continent, on the first yacht to ever complete such a voyage from Ireland.
