Slocum's would make a great movie. Compared to him there are no true circumnavigators at all in today's world. Guess that would be a good thread starter. Has anyone circumnavigated the world using only dead reckoning and sextant

Yeah, I'd like to see that, too. I just read the book again a couple of weeks ago.

Here's another ... a documentary on Bernard Moitessier. Very well done and very interesting, especially the part about his childhood.


And here's a interesting documentary on the Fastnet disaster made by the BBC. It follows one boat and the story is told by one of the survivors.


I bought an HDMI cable and now plug my laptop into the TV and watch these things on the big screen. What a difference!

I've heard they were making a movie about Crowhurst starring Colin Firth.

I think Eddie Marsan looks the spitting image of Donald Crowhurst:



Donald Crowhurst:

man id love to see that new movie, I think colin firth is a grea actor...

there are quote a few books about the golden globe out there all with "different" points of view

as usual I always defer to motissiers view on it and like what he decided to do during and after the race

Re: Sailing movies/ films

I don't think it was mentioned in Mad Men but one of the reasons for Crowhursts distress was the release of satnav to the public (Pueblo Incident).He already had big troubles but his fortunes were connected to development of a handheld RF direction finder/compass. I made an E to W crossing that year but didn't run into any of the racers .Went on that summer to work on mapping the Mid Atlantic Ridge using the first civilian sat nav to prove plate tectonics. Interesting but not as noteworthy as stepping off the stern of your boat on a moonless night. The book 'The Strange Case of Donald Crowhurst' gives some insight.

I like Wind for the sailing scenes and of course Captain Ron.
