Dove for entertainment, Captain Ron is more of an instructional video

Morning light was pretty cool...

95 Catalina 30 Island Time

The sail, the play of its pulse so like our own lives: so thin and yet so full of life, so noiseless when it labors hardest, so noisy and impatient when least effective." - Henry David Thoreau

Sailing Related Movies

Crosswinds, 1951,with John Payne and Rhonda Fleming

Wake of the Red Witch, 1949, with John Wayne

Just a couple oldies I've found. Not so much "about" sailing as a story with a boat in it.

Number one is certainly Morning Light. Great recomendation.
Yes, I agree with the mandate for Captain Ron!
Captain and Commander is a winner as well...several episodes to get hooked.
No, I would not recommend Dove.
No, I would not recommend Crowhurst.
Water World gets a maybe.......Nice multi-hull special effects.....but bad, bad-guys.
Two good submarine themes are Operation Peticoat and Down Periscope
And you might like "The Wackiest Ship in the Army" or "Father Goose".
Enjoy

I'll have to check out the Jean de Sud movie, thanks for that.

Morning Glory by Disney was worth a watch. Walt's nephew finances a race crew for a trans pacific race. He recruits a bunch of completely green young folks, trains them up and enters them in the race. It's a little bit too much like MTV's "Real World" at times, but it's nice watching noobs turn into real sailors.
