Sailing Related Movies

Anyone know of any great or not so great sailing movies? We have about 6 weeks left until boating season starts again. It would be nice to find something to watch.

Movies could be big time movies to little you tube type. Fictional or instructional.

Here's a few to get started.
The O Canada Project


Sailing Around The World - The O Canada Project




Racing Around the World Alone

Racing Around the World Alone (2010) - IMDb



Cast Away, Ok not really a sailing movie, but sort of applies.


Any other fun movies you can think of. I left some obvious ones out to see who post them first.

Other than "Dove", I personally don't know of any. There are some interesting videos on You Tube. The adventures of LeaLea come to mind.

Captain Rob is of course #1 but Summer Rental where John Candy learns to sail and race in the local regatta is fun.

Quite a long list of movies has already been started in another movie thread.

An older film, Around The World With Jean De Sud, is still one of the best ever documentaries about circumnavigating in a small (30') sailboat. At times its hard to believe that there is not a whole film crew on board with Yves Gelinas...his extraordinary abilities as a filmmaker only add to the great story. I have one of Yves' Cape Horn windvanes on my boat, so I especially recommend this movie to anyone considering self steering gear.
