Hands down, Captain Ron - best sailing movie ever!
Kurt Russell, Martin Short, Mary Kay Place - probably has a soft R rating though - (about 2 seconds of Mary's titties)

Saltwater Suzi and Cap'n Larry

The Pirates of the Carib movies are family friendly.

If you liked Master and Commander, how about the Horatio Hornblower series.

Not exactly movies per se, but documentaries. Home | Volvo Ocean Race TV has about 50 hours of video on the Whitbread and VOR from '73 to present. Very cool to see how much fun they used to have, and how much it sucks to be on those boats these days.

I watched Wind today for the first time, excellent movie. I really enjoyed the sailing scenes.

Some other sailing type movies I picked up:
-50 First dates
-Stardust (Good family film if you have kids, coming of age type film)
-Count of Monte Cristo (Ok, a couple of scenes on ships)
-Evan Almighty (sailing? well maybe not)
-Failure to Launch
-Firefly (TV series space adventure but sailing references)
-Blackbeard
-Monty Python's Meaning of Life (beginning sequence sailing a building LOL)
-Princess Bride (Inconceivable!)
-Moby Dick (but I think the kids might fall alseep, I almost did)
-Swiss Family Robinson (classic)
-Black Swan (movie about Henry Morgan)
-Waterworld (hmm, not sure if its worth the money though)
-Sinbad movies (my favorites; 7th Voyage, Golden Voyage, Eye of the Tiger)

Captains Courageous w Spencer Tracey is a family favorite. Still enjoy it w my grandchildren. The Original Moby Dick is super too, with Lionel Barrymore [found it on ebay,after finding it on late late night TV] Kids love it.

My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.
