The 635-mile Newport-Bermuda Ocean Sailing Race has proven so glamorous, challenging and subsequently addictive that, despite its many trials, thousands of sailors return to participate year after year. In 2006, a record-size fleet of world-class yachtsmen and amateur cruisers took part in the event, which commemorated the 100th anniversary of this ocean-racing classic. In RACING TO BERMUDA: A CENTURY ON THE OCEAN, former America's Cup winner and ESPN sailing commentator Gary Jobson combines his sailing and documentary expertise for an insider's perspective. Cameras aboard eight vessels capture the ups and downs of extended ocean racing as the sailboats cross treacherous portions of the Gulf Stream.
