Sailing movies/ films
 
I don't know if anyone has made a thread like this in the past, I looked for this on the search but sometimes theres hidden results. However today i saw all is lost, it was alright but I was wondering if anyone wanted to help me make a list of sailing related movies.

I would separate it into two separate kinds of movies, Entertaining/hollywood and documentaries. I don't mind if the sailing content is somewhat unrealistic i just think having a thread about sailing related movies would be interesting so go.

Agree, but I think his actions were dictated by his desire to join his dead wife.

Deep Water . . . . documentary about Donald Crowhurst, wow and whoa . . . sort of depressing, shows the "head games" with solitude for some . . .

Got to add a few here.....

I/we LOVE ALL sailing movies/videos! Even the ones that are soooooo flawed as to have a china cabinet in the main cabin and pet food bowls that don't spill during the storm!!! :p

But for the top ones....

From Hollywood;
FIRST :D *** Captain Ron! *** :D
Wind - starred Matthew Modine, Jennifer Grey and Cliff Robertson.
Overboard – starring Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell
White Squall - Jeff Bridges as Christopher "Skipper" Sheldon, Caroline Goodall as Alice Sheldon

From real people;
Blue Water Odyssey -
600 Days to Cocos Island - 600 Days to Cocos & the Galapagos Islands
The Partnership Voyage of Entr'acte - The Partnership is a story of love and friendship onboard a Nor Sea 27 sailboat

Disclosure;
We knew Gene Evans of 600 Days, who has passed away. He was a good man and a fine sailor.
We are friends with Ed & Ellen Zacko of Partnership. And they sail a sister ship to ours.
I won't list ours from our web site.
