I just signed up so I could add this one...

Visitors starring Rahda Mitchell. About an Aussie solo circumnavigation in which the sailor(-ess) begins to have visions while she's becalmed. Just seeing Rahda's swimsuit made the whole movie worthwhile. I found it at Blockbuster. It's also Netflixable apparently.

Btw: Hello everybody... first post.

Maybe it got lost in all the others, but "Captain Horatio Hornblower" with Gregory Peck was a lot of fun and in keeping with the novels.

What's that? Would the Annapolis series be good for a newbie like myself?

Watch the first one and decide for yourself. I think the first and the safety one were the best. Always fun to see John Rousmanier politely bark at his crew...
In the safety one, they do a full Lifesling recovery, as well as demo some other options.

There's also Amistad from Spielberg and a great old movie called Swashbuckler with Robert Shaw and James Earl Jones.

Red face

Lord Jim is a wonderful story about decisions that must be made at sea under stressful conditions. And about the consequences of those decisions. Not about sailboats any more than the Titanic is about sailboats.
