A bit obscure, but a classic 80's John Cusack movie has a bit of sailing... Hot Pursuit.

Also Summer Rental with John Candy has a little.

How about Dead Calm? Another obscure late 80's, movie with Sam Niell, Nicole Kidman and Billy Zane. Actually I think this whole movie takes place on a sailboat. I don't think there is any land in the whole movie. That's kind of rare.

Lastly, Perfect Storm. It doesn't have much sailing, but what little sailing it does have is pretty awesome to watch. And there is just a ton of great ocean footage (whether real or fake...)

Can't believe I forgot these! White Squall, one of my favorite sailing movies and also Wind.

CaptainForce will become famous soon enough
"Wind" 1992- Check it out! Much more sailing than Capt Ron & Master and Commander combined.

Gotta vote for WIND. The story's a chick flick but the sailing is outstanding.

Wind is great, you watch the first half hour, then skip the middle to the last half hour, then it's ALL sailing

I have a copy of wind. I thought the production quality was so poor that it distracted from the film.

Master and Commander is more about on board ship life and fighting tactics in the "Age of Sail."

Movies with Sailing

Try two old classics - "Captain Blood" and "Seahawk" both with Errol Flynn. Sailing scenes were done with small (18 feet long) models, but the story and swordfighting are excellent.

How about the recent Disney Movie about the kids. First Light, I think?
