sailing movies / video suggestions?

Got one of those Blu-Ray contraptions and am enjoying David Attenborough's BBC "Life" series in full 240hz 1080P surround sound-ness. Would love to spend this cold land-locked Pennsylvania winter watching a sailing movie or two. Any recommendations for good movies or videos? Volvo Ocean Race or something maybe? Or even something with a plot? White Squall and Perfect Storm being the only two boating movies I can think of. (Other than that ocean liner movie)

Suggestions? Preferably stuff that's reasonably priced on Amazon or on the shelf at Blockbuster. (or can be streamed online maybe?)

Thanks!

I have often wondered where all the HD video taken from helicopters at ocean racing events end up...it is a wonder that there is not someone editing this into a nice IMAX-ish video spectacular!

Yves Gelina's documentary about rounding Cape Horn in his Alberg 30 is really good.

I must say that master and commander wins!
wind is also good.
I sat through morning light but was ultimately disappointed with the film. Likely due to the fact that I'm not 16.
Lets see some more movies it's winter in Oregon also!

I second Yves Gelinas - Jean-du-Sud, an Alberg 30 around the world and also "Wind" and of course I also second, third or whatever it is now "Master & Commander"
A real good series not mentioned is A&Es C.S Foresters 8 disk set "Horatio Hornblower"

I find that if you haven't seen Cap'n Ron you will have no idea how many lines from the movie are routinely being thrown your way. Its not great theater, but it has some funny parts and you'll stop wondering what in the heck that guy just meant by:

If its gonna happen, it gonna happen out there.
I'm going down for some shuteye.
I learned that on the sara.
Everyone has a job to do, if you do a good job, you get a better job.
At least your dry rot is above the waterline.
I know we are in Puerto Rico, because it was x hours away, I put in x hours of fuel and we are out of fuel. (forgot the specifics)

I'm forgetting a hundred more.
