Synopsis: The invigorating story of a real-life race to  sail around the world--and break the fictitious  record set in Jules Verne's 1873 novel--in seventy-nine  days.
In Jules Verne's historic  novel Around the World in Eighty Days, Phileas Fogg  and Jean Passepartout race at break-neck speed to  circle the globe in eighty days. Around  The World In Seventy-Nine Days is the  true story of Cam Lewis, who set out to better the  impossible pace set by Verne's illustrious  characters. Along with Bruno Peyron, one of France's most  famous sailors, and a small crew of Frenchmen  aboard the Commodore Explorer, Lewis set  sail.
A world champion sailor, Lewis's spirits and  patience were often tested by communication  difficulties with the French-speaking crew, midnight  steering shifts, fatigue, frustration, and fifty-foot  waves that threatened to smash the boat. Fearing  for his life, Lewis grappled with the idea that he  might never again see his fiance--or the unborn  child that she was carrying. This fascinating  chronicle of a world-class journey illuminates not only  the struggle to maintain endurance and faith, but  the will to achieve greatness no matter what the  odds.

About the Author: Cam Lewis sailed around the world with four Frenchman in 79 days to win the inaugural Jules Verne Trophy Race. On the 86 foot catamaran "Commodore Explorer" they broke the previous record for a non-stop circumnavigation under sail by 30 days- or an astounding 27 percent. As a result, Lewis was awarded the 1993 Rolex Yachtsman of the Year honors. He sailed on the victorious 1988 America's Cup winner Stars and Stripes with Dennis Conner, won back to back Finn Gold Cups (World Championships) and 505 Championships, The Maxi Boat World Championships as Helmsman on Matador 2 and has won numerous National, North American and International championships in many one-design classes. Lewis sailed with Laurent Bourgnon on the Trimaran "PRIMAGAZ" in the 1994 Two-Handed Transatlantic Race and won it to set a record of 9 days and 8 hours. Lewis has competed at all levels of sailing from sail boards to maxi yachts and mega cats. He has raced on all the worlds oceans, set many records and continues to sail at the top level on some of the worlds best boats. Six years after finishing the Jules Verne, Cam launched his own mega-catamaran, Team Adventure and raced it around the world, finshing third in THE RACE. He lives on the shore of lake in Maine with his two sons, Max and Beau. The ocean is not far away and they spend lots of time on the water and continue to explore and participate in many adventures.
