Cruising DVD recommendations...

Greetings All

I am looking for a cruising dvd to watch... something like a good quality production of a family sailing around the world etc. Something I can sit down and share with the family.

Does anyone have any recommendations.

Thanks

Karl

Yep. Captain Ron - cause that is pretty much what it is like!!!! Absolutely hillarious. I would not take any other movies too serious because you chart your own course with your family.

Not sure if it is available on DVD but "The Dove" is the main reason I am a guitar player and a sailor.

It's more of a sail-mentary...but check out the Shard's Distant Shores series.

They're a Canadian couple who built their boat & sail all over filming their exploits. We're in the middle of their Med cruise. Pretty good show of life onboard, and the sites, places & people they see.

It's not whether you're paranoid...it's whether you're paranoid enough.

There is a very good cruising documentary called "Ice Blink". Very well done, and at times poignant. There is a free preview of the DVD on our site (yes, you can buy it there, or on thesailingchannel.com site, or at iceblink.com - but at least you can see a bit of it to know if you would want to order it):

Latitudes and Attitudes Television

Click on "Other Sailing Videos" in the upper right, and then click on the "Ice Blink" DVD preview. Then click on "Play Part 1" in the lower right. I know, it's a pain to navigate our TV site. I'm trying to get it fixed to be a lot easier and more intuitive.

The preview was produced by Tory Salvia at thesailingchannel.com. He did a wonderful job of capturing the essence of the film. After watching it, my wife became even more interested in cruising.

I also like the Shards DVDs, and "Project BlueSphere" by Alex Dorsey. "Sail Vicarious" is fun to watch, with high end amateur video work.
