a little depressing, but "Deep Water", about Donald Crowhurst and the Golden Globe race is a great documentary. The book "Voyage for Mad Men" about the race is awesome as well.

IMHO -- YMMV

"Captains Courageous", an early Spencer Tracy film with outstanding footage of working schooners under sail.

Charlie St. Cloud

I know it's not about sailing, but it has sailing in it.

How is Charlie St. Cloud? Seems like they ran two ad campaigns for it.. One set of commercials made it look like an awesome sailing movie. The other commercials (which probably ran during Oprah) made it look like some stupid love story with a sailboat in the background. I can deal with stupid love stories or chick flicks as long as they're decently done, and entertaining. I'm hoping this one is worth a redbox dollar...

Keep the expenses low and the good times high.

Hallmark plot and quality. Not very much sailing. Sixth Sense meets Wind.
