Great Sailing Movies

I guess we all like sailing boats so if you see some great sailing movie on the net why not share with the rest of us? I like them and I guess we all like them

Just put this one in 720 (HI) and enjoy

This one is a video of the french sailor, Bernard Moitessier.
The vid is all in french ( couldn't find it in english ).

Hope you guys understand it, it's very good...

Nice posts! I also really enjoy the genre of sailing videos where there is a small crew of non-professionals that are crossing and keeping a daily video log of everything they go through. It's nice to see what others REALLY go through while living our dream.

Excellent, and thanks! My favorites are the ones like these that are more about the gritty not-always-so-fun times. I know about those from local sailing.

Thanks Peter. Great movie Moitessier is one of the sail legends of all times, one of my favorites with Tabarly:

Dailymotion - Tabarly : le film - une vidéo Film & TV

Let's get some contrast here. Look at this one about the new generation of one design oceanic racing multihulls, the M70 series that will start racing soon skippered by some of the best sailors on the planet:

As in the (now defunct) BT Global Challenge. This short vid has been beat to death, but it's still one of my favorites.

Yes, that's a great movie and that's a shame the low quality of the movie (240p).

For the guys that like big voyages in small boats, look at this guy: A circumnavigation with a 19ft lake boat

It is a pity the low resolution of the movie:

A friend of mine loaned me the Jean-de-sud movie on DVD and I really enjoyed it, great story.

While not really a movie the video below always gets my heart pumping. Its description is "Defi Petit Navire - french racing in the Douarnenez Bay" and is probably the most exhilarating sailing videos I have ever seen. Check it out.

YouTube - Everybody

You will regret the things you did not do, more than the things you did.

Get out there!
