My least favourite sailing 'scene' is the knockdown in "White Squall" - clearly done in a pool.... and there's a lot of inconsistency/continuity issues in "Dead Calm" too.

Despite a pretty lame story line, the final race scenes in the movie "Wind" are actually pretty well done (with retired 12Meters).
