Mitch,

Thank you very much for that theatre info.

Do you, or anyone else, know whether it is easy to get to the Harbor Cinema from downtown Annapolis? We might be sailing up that way this weekend -- wondering if we can catch the movie. Walking distance? Or a cab ride?

I saw the movie saturday evening, the 9:30 PM matinee. There were three other couples in the theater.

As much as I love sailing and all stuff related to the sport, I personally found the movie pretty dragging...IMHO maybe see it from Netflix, maybe not. The movie seemed to think we'd all be interested getting to know a bunch of cute twentysomethings...well not me. It seemed to me a version of the Real People show featuring a boring bunch of clean-cuts and no personal dramas. Shhsss...good for a snooze. The interesting components in the show....the TP52 and offshore sailing didn't get much play - that's stuff I would have been interested in seeing more off.

My advice, get this CD from Neflkix and use the money you save to buy the two DVD volume this Scuttlebutt Video: Volvo Ocean Race came from!

john--definite cab ride, although a bus may go from city dock out there. too far to walk .

Mitch,

Roger that, thanks. That could make it pricey for a family of five. We'll see.


Sailingfool,

We spooled the movie trailer, and based on what little we saw I'm inclined to agree with your comments above. It definitely had a "plastic" feel to it. Maybe Netflix is the way to go....

It is not Star Wars or Harry Potter. It is a sailing flick like Warren Miller Skiing.
If you open your eyes to the movie, you can learn about team work, weather decisions, emergency manuevers, and team work. I mean safety and team work where everything is not exciting but there are moments of thrill where things work out. It is a documentary film. It shows what it is like to go blue water. It tells you "sailingfool" that you should stay in protected waters and sail for a few hours with a few people and go do something else.

By all means if you need some entertainment the night you think you might see the film to divert to another film that will hold your attention.

My whole family is very happy they saw it and made them want to jump on the boat and sail even in the cold weather. But we like to sail and I have gone into a life raft and seen the coast guard in action so I can relate.

Skye,

I agree whole-heartedly. I took my family along with some sailing friends to see the movie on Friday night. I thought is was an excellent movie. It's very unusual to watch a movie with an 8 year old where your not embarrased by at least some part of the film and this was the exception.

There was no phony drama added. It was just a bunch of kids trying their damndest in a once in a lifetime opportunity. The videography alone was worth the price of admission.

I think the movie is currently in limited release, and will be released more widely later on.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I saw it monday in Huntington Beach, CA, there was only 5 folks in the theatre including my girlfriend and me. We both enjoyed the movie, definitely had the Warren Miller kind of movie appeal.

Saw it last night. REALLY enjoyed the movie. Touched on some of the challenges of racing without getting too involved. My friend, who doesn't sail, said she really liked it as well.

If they do decide to release it, I may go see it again.
BTW, the TP52 is one bad a$$ boat. 27 knts is killer.
