Wind had some good sailing scenes.
Incidentally the "Barnacle" from Summer Rental is currently on eBay. 1969 38' Irwin, owner wants $80k.

"Damn the Defiant" with Alec Guiness, Dirk Bogarde, and Anthony Quayle. Superior to any of the Hornblower movies.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

I am surprised no one has mentioned "Overboard" the movie of the book with the same title written by Hank Searls. It is about a couple from California who go off cruising. They get to Tahiti and he has to go back home for a short time. While he is gone, she has an affair with a Frenchman. When he gets back they sail from Tahiti to Bora Bora and on the way there he falls overboard. I won't tell you the rest of the story; but, when we were in Tahiti in 172, we were anchored right next to Hank and Bunny Searls. Almost all the characters in the book are from real life people who were out sailing through French Polynesia at the time. In fact all the characters were so real to us that when we read the book, Kitty and I looked at each other and exclaimed, "My God, did Bunny actually have an affair with Bernard Moitessier!" You see Moitessier was also anchored next to us.

If a man must be obsessed by something, I suppose a boat is as good as anything, perhaps better than most. A small sailing craft is not only beautiful, it is seductive and full of strange promise and the hint of trouble.
