I watched him, too. After a few videos in, watching him became depressing. It seemed that he was always down and always harping the negative and all the bad things that were going on. I think I responded at one point asking him why he sailed if he so-hated it.

There are plenty of videos of other adventures on YouTube where the people had good times and you could tell that they genuinely enjoyed sailing. Even when videoing the bad stuff most would have a decent attitude about it.

commercially made

If you're looking for a great old commercially made movie just full of sailing as well as a good story line see "Wake of the Red Witch" starring John Wayne. It's currently on Netflix.

If you think the previous movies were shot in bad weather, look at this solo sailor near the Southern Ocean

To the wind surfers on this forum :

YouTube - ‪Windsurfer vs. Multi‬‏

I had to say that they are sometimes quite annoying. On the way out of the Gibraltar strait, near Tarifa, there is always a lot of wind and there are also always some very good wind-surfers around. I have passed there several times blowing hard (+30K) and it is pissing to have them around (they come to see the boat) while you try to reef and control the boat in an agitated water. I always expect to hear one of them say: "Do you need help" .

Normally with lot's of wind I do allright, making between 8 and 10k but those guys just make me look dead on the water, going in circles at well over 20K.

I guess you have to be pretty good to sail one of those things with winds over 30K and with lot's of waves. They jump from the top of one wave to another like it was easy. Awesome spectacle.

If you are not lucky enough to be sailing, at least watch some damn good sailing :

YouTube - ‪2010 Euro Cats Long Distance - Belgium‬‏
