Sailing Movies

My favorites are Master and Commander, White Squall, and Cap'n Ron. Here are some others that haven't been mentioned in this thread that I enjoyed:

Wake of the Red Witch - John Wayne in the South Pacific
Lifeboat - Hitchcock movie about survivors of a U-boat attack
Wackiest Ship in the Army - Jack Lemon skippers a sailboat during WWII
Message in a Bottle - Kevin Costner in a Nicholas Sparks story
Treasure Island - 1950s Disney Classic
Billy Budd - this movie is a bit of downer a a little cheesy, but good overall
Longitude - for TV mini-series
The Sea Hawk - Errol Flynn versus the Spanish Armada

I got my wife Message in a Bottle as part of a 3 pack of "chick flicks" that she watches while working on a project and I'm not around. Didn't think it'd be something I'd be interested in or that it was a sailing movie. Also in the 3 pack is "nights in rodanthe" -- outer banks? Wonder what she'll think when she comes home and I'm watching her chick flicks...

Keep the expenses low and the good times high.

The Riddle of the Sands 1978/9

A good story and some good old boat sailing.

I didn't read the whole post, mainly because I am daydreaming at work and can only afford so much time haha.

Has anyone mentioned Captains Courageous, it is black and white from the 30's but I thought it was a really good movie.

Also Cap'n Ron, my favorite movie of all time.

A movie with some good sailing and disaster action is "The Reef". I just watched it on Netflix. We could start a whole thread with the question "what would you do?"

Re: sailing movies / video suggestions?

The documentary about SV DRUM (Sydney-Hobart race) on youtube.
If you havent seen it yet, Its a must see.
Fillmed in the 80s so lots a half naked dudes in mustaches so your better half will like it, Large fast open 70s (i think) racing to the edge and beyond, Just plain epic.
