Re: Sailing movies/ films

I cant believe a movie was never made from "Maiden Voyage". That story intrigued me to no end when I was young. I could see it being made today with some cute actress.

Re: Sailing movies/ films

Here's another ... a documentary on Bernard Moitessier. Very well done and very interesting, especially the part about his childhood.


And here's a interesting documentary on the Fastnet disaster made by the BBC. It follows one boat and the story is told by one of the survivors.


I bought an HDMI cable and now plug my laptop into the TV and watch these things on the big screen. What a difference!

Yeah, I'd like to see that, too. I just read the book again a couple of weeks ago.

Re: Sailing movies/ films

I'd love to see Robin Graham's story remade with an A list director.
Also, I'm surprised I've never seen a film based on Joshua Slocum's circumnavigation story

Slocum's would make a great movie. Compared to him there are no true circumnavigators at all in today's world. Guess that would be a good thread starter. Has anyone circumnavigated the world using only dead reckoning and sextant

thanks for the link. Creamer sure went on a voyage. Looks like he only made a couple of stops but he did have others come and go on the trip...wonder how that was done via helicopter? I thought it interesting he decided on a steel vessel for the final trip. What scares me out there is the thought of hitting debris like a container at night. If he would have done this trip solo I would rate him up there with Slocum but he didn't so Slocum is still #1

Using a sextant and DR doesn't make you a "true" circumnavigator. It makes you a circumnavigator who used a sextant and DR.

Re: Sailing movies/ films

I agree. I watched the whole movie for the sailing, but the acting and overall 70s quality wasn't very good.
