Cameron Lewis

Cam is one of the world’s most recognized and successful sporting figures due in part to his versatility as a sailor. His achievements range from twin Finn Gold Cups championships and winning the 505 World championship, to Big Boat racing and offshore multihull record-setting. He was a key crew member on board Dennis Connor’s victorious Stars and Stripes catamaran when they decidedly beat the 90ft super-monohull from New Zealand during the 1988 America’s Cup. Cam was the only American aboard the Commodore Explorer, the catamaran that in 1993 broke the mythical 80-day around-the-world record to become the first holder of the coveted Trophée Jules Verne. In The Race, the ultimate around-the-world sailing competition among unrestricted multihulls that took place in 2000, Cam Lewis’ 110ft catamaran Team Adventure was arguably the fastest boat in the fleet and only serious damages pushed his team into third place.*
