High risk, extreme weather, knife-edge decisions, rivalries and challenges in the toughest environment are all in a day’s work for exceptional Irish sailor, Damian Foxall.

High risk, extreme weather, knife-edge decisions, rivalries and challenges in the toughest environment are all in a day's work for exceptional Irish sailor, Damian Foxall. From a remote bay in Kerry to the Southern Ocean, Damian has raced around the world eight times. Ocean Fever traces his years as a restless teenager and his successes and failures on many teams, lifting the lid on this toughest of sports. Foxall has raced with the world's best, such as Alan Gautier, Steve Fossett and Tracy Edwards. In 2008 he won the Barcelona World Race with Jean Pierre Dick and sailed with Ireland's Green Dragon team in the 2009 Volvo Ocean Race.

He recounts how professional sailing has evolved to push human performance ever further to the mythical edge. Damian's positive attitude, stamina and courage shine through as he shows what takes place in the white heat of competition. While he has accomplished much, finding proud moments and tragedy, Foxall's journey still has a distance to go.

Conceived as a retirement project, so much has happened already this book of 'tales from the ocean' has much to tell.
