"Deep Water". It's a very compelling movie about the first men to attempt an around the world race. I got it off Itunes. It's a movie that is kinda presented as a documentary.

Captains Courageous, the Spencer Tracy version from the '30's. Some truly beautiful footage of sailing Grand Banks fishing schooners.

Can't think of the name (old-age), had great scenes of bluenose type fishing shcooners racing. I think it had to do with Alaska.

Got it!

The World in His Arms, 1952. Gregory Peck , Anthony Quinn. One of the interesting things was, when the racing scenes were shot, the heros' boat was supossed to win. But the two schooner crews were so competetive that the other boat won. They had to shoot the race a second time, and the "wrong" boat won again. Ya gotta love it.

Morning Light. It's pretty good, even my kids liked it.

Wind and Waterworld are my favorites. " SMOKERS!"

Jaws 2. A bunch of kids are on small sailboats having a great time.

A shark then eats them, but up until that time, they were having a great little sail.

That and the fact that Jennifer Gray is a goofball...along with the other two dorks she was hookin' up with. Ouch.
