I am actually reading a book right now on the 1998 Sydney Hobart race. Where could I find this movie? Is that the real name of it or is the title something different? I tried searching for it but couldn't find anything other than articles.

Thanks

I agree with several

Captain Ron is one I can watch any winter day! Master Commander is also good but different. So too is White Squall. How about some that haven't been mentioned yet, the original Mutiny on the Bounty and it’s remake, Bounty. And for a brief few seconds in the remake of The Thomas Crown Affair when they race and flip a couple BIG cats. And then there is the Burt Reynolds and Gene Hackman, Liza Minelli in Lucky Lady. How could we forget Pirates Of The Caribbean~!

No mention yet of my favourite (nor is it in the collection of John's Sailing Movies): "Knife in the Water" (dir. Roman Polanski, Poland, 1963, BW). A direct forerunner and better than Dead Calm, the theme is a couple on a remote sailing holiday who chance upon a dangerous stranger.

It was a surprise to me that yachting was popular in Poland in the early 1960's, but apparently so.

"Das Boot"

Translated as;The Boat. About a German submarine crew in WW2. Shows the reality of being on the ocean for a long time, not sugar coated with babes and sunsets.

How about "Wind" with Mathew Bodine and Jennifer Grey (Dirty Dancing). It's a pretty good flick about America's Cup racing.

Turn off the DVD player and go sailing. It's not a spectator sport! (Heh heh heh.... Couldn't resist that.)

Hello to everyone!

My name is John, I have a list of sailing movies, that has been mentioned a couple of times in this thread. (I'd post another link to it, but I can't until I have 10 posts) Someone named Carl sent me a note telling me about this site, and this thread. This is obviously someplace I needed to know about! I'm delighted to find it.

It's been difficult to find all the sailing movies, so this list has been built slowly, and with a lot of suggestions from readers.(I'm going through this thread and noting titles I don't have.) Please note as you're making suggestions, that I've built a list of sailing movies, not sea stories (Sorry, no Das Boot), and no documenteries, or sailing videos. (I've often thought about a seperate list for documenteries - there's some fine ones out there - but I just haven't had the time.)

You can email me with suggestions, and reviews, I happily credit any review I use.

LynW: Knife in the Water is on the list, between King's Pirate, and Lady From Shanghai. I loved that movie!

John,

Glad to see you found us, welcome aboard. I've only been here a short time but I've learned so much just reading the various articles, not to mention I get a laugh or two.
