Re: Sailing movies/ films

180* (degrees) South

It's a sailing/surfing/climbing movie with a message about stopping development in South America. There's a good 20 minutes about how the 50' sailboats mast snaps in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, they go to Easter Island and have to step a new mast while anchored in a bay. Pretty interesting rig set up to step the mast. Some funny commentary about how uncomfortable it is to be sailing in the ocean for days on end.

Oh and it's pretty heavily endorsed by Patagonia, but worth a look.

Re: Sailing movies/ films

So, not a Hollywood movie, but if you want to watch some intense sailing, the most recent Volvo Ocean Race documentary on youtube is INTENSE. They make most of our kind of sailing look like playing with rubber ducks in the bath tub.

Here's where it starts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqOsqvKARww

Netflix has it available for streaming. I will say that I found it almost unwatchable. I don't think I even finished it. I'm no great drama critic, but I found the ****** and acting ponderous and stilted; yuck. I was sorely disappointed with Mr. Peck.

If you're speaking of "The Dove", released in 1974, that was the true story of Robin Graham's 1965 circumnavigation. Also, there was the 1973 movie with Desi Arnez Jr called, "The Voyage of the Yes". Both of thee films had that "innocent, naive, adventurous" quality that you cite.

Re: Sailing movies/ films

If you think that dove was just a Hollywood movie go to kalispell Montana and look up a log cabin builder name of robin graham. Hollywood ruined it read the book much better.
