Re: Sailing movies/ films

I created a go to list for 36 good movies about sailing or just being on the good water-adventure themes on our blog. Some that I love enough to keep on the boat. Always a good christmas present too.

I cover Buster Keaton, which I have watched on netflix or on youtube to this years 2 new sailing themed films.

yes that is the one...the dove...in the movie they use a ranger 23 instead of the actual boat robin used...but still after reading the book many times I could often see the exact images robin was reffering to...even hiw he lost his cat and all! jajaja

yup! still its a movie and this is what this thread about...

he indeed retired into the woods if you will...having nothing to do with modern society...and that was back in the late 70s...

I have read his book many many times...inspiring me to let loose and cruise when I was barely 17...a bit older than he was when he set sail...

cheers

Don't forget Dylan Winter now has five sets of "Keep Turning Left" dvds available:

Keep Turning Left

Small-boat sailing, gunkholing, gorgeous photography - take a look!

Watched this last night. What a sad tale. Not sure how accurate it was but interesting tale.

I like Wind for the sailing scenes and of course Captain Ron.

The book "
A Voyage For Madmen: Peter Nichols: 9780732275921: Books - Amazon.ca A Voyage For Madmen: Peter Nichols: 9780732275921: Books - Amazon.ca


" goes into more detail about Crowhurst as well as the other competitors in the Golden Globe race.

I've heard they were making a movie about Crowhurst starring Colin Firth.

I think Eddie Marsan looks the spitting image of Donald Crowhurst:

Re: Sailing movies/ films

I don't think it was mentioned in Mad Men but one of the reasons for Crowhursts distress was the release of satnav to the public (Pueblo Incident).He already had big troubles but his fortunes were connected to development of a handheld RF direction finder/compass. I made an E to W crossing that year but didn't run into any of the racers .Went on that summer to work on mapping the Mid Atlantic Ridge using the first civilian sat nav to prove plate tectonics. Interesting but not as noteworthy as stepping off the stern of your boat on a moonless night. The book 'The Strange Case of Donald Crowhurst' gives some insight.

man id love to see that new movie, I think colin firth is a grea actor...

there are quote a few books about the golden globe out there all with "different" points of view

as usual I always defer to motissiers view on it and like what he decided to do during and after the race
