"Dead Calm" was good. "Waterworld?" Just kidding!!

"50 First Dates" had an underlying Formosa 51 theme, but was seen very little in the movie. "Double Jeopardy" had a sailboat scene or two in it. And Ashley Judd. Yum. "The Wedding Crashers" had some sailing in it, too.

The "four seasons" had some very real and funny sailing scenes.

Wanna see a really rich guy crash a large, expensive racing cat...?

One small scene in The Thomas Crown Affair (w/Pierce Brosnan).

That is the "new" TCA and yes, that scene is worth the price of admission. I wish there were more sailing in that movie...
We just glossed over Captain Ron, that has to be in the list ah swab?

I can't think of the name of it, but there was a movie with John Candy where he races a boat that was a resturant and flies his pants as a sail.

Then there was a movie with Adam Sandler, 10 thousand first dates, they go sailing at then. That was an awesome boat.

Here is one I have not seen mentioned. It is called "DOVE" I believe with Gregory Peck about the sailing around the world by Robin Graham in a Cal 20 I believe but for estetics purposes they used a Ranger 23 in the movie. Hard to find and if anybody can find a copy of it I would love to know about it. Rick

Some sailing done in the film release of Mam Mia. A very nice yacht in that movie indeed. The Tai Mo Shan a 54 foot Ketch. Threads on this boat elsewhere here on Sailnet for the Mam Mia crowd.

"Summer Rental" a great comedy.
