Old sailing movie
 
A few years ago someone posted a link to an old home made movie of a guy sailing (crewing) on a large commercial sailing vessel (tall ship) around cape horn. I believe the movie was filmed in the 30's/40's? I can't find it now. Any ideas? I believe the movie was around 45-60 minutes in length.

Thanks, Eric

Don't know if this is it, but it was easy to find...

Amazon.com: Around Cape Horn - Capt. Irving Johnson Sailing DVD: Irving Johnson: Movies & TV

Possibly. It was an online video though.

After some additional research, it seems that is the video, but it is no longer free online. Thanks for the help

I think you may be referring to Alan Villiers’ "Around the Horn in a Square-Rigger" (1933). I believe this film was restored by the South Street Seaport in New York and is available in video format. Fandor - Film: Around the Horn in a Square Rigger

I think it was me who linked to that movie, certainly its a favourite of mine. I found it on YouTube but i'm not finding it now. Maybe it has been removed.
