I don't know if anyone has made a thread like this in the past, I looked for this on the search but sometimes theres hidden results. However today i saw all is lost, it was alright but I was wondering if anyone wanted to help me make a list of sailing related movies.

I would separate it into two separate kinds of movies, Entertaining/hollywood and documentaries. I don't mind if the sailing content is somewhat unrealistic i just think having a thread about sailing related movies would be interesting so go.

Got to add a few here.....

I/we LOVE ALL sailing movies/videos! Even the ones that are soooooo flawed as to have a china cabinet in the main cabin and pet food bowls that don't spill during the storm!!! :p

But for the top ones....

From Hollywood;
FIRST :D *** Captain Ron! *** :D
Wind - starred Matthew Modine, Jennifer Grey and Cliff Robertson.
Overboard – starring Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell
White Squall - Jeff Bridges as Christopher "Skipper" Sheldon, Caroline Goodall as Alice Sheldon

From real people;
Blue Water Odyssey - Amazon.com: Blue Water Odyssey: Movies & [email protected]@[email protected]@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/[email protected]@[email protected]@51PZSGAESFL
600 Days to Cocos Island - 600 Days to Cocos & the Galapagos Islands
The Partnership Voyage of Entr'acte - The Partnership is a story of love and friendship onboard a Nor Sea 27 sailboat

Disclosure;
We knew Gene Evans of 600 Days, who has passed away. He was a good man and a fine sailor.
We are friends with Ed & Ellen Zacko of Partnership. And they sail a sister ship to ours.
I won't list ours from our web site.

'except the character played by Kevin Costner closes his role in the film by making the dumbest poor seamanship decision ever portrayed on film!

if I remember correctly he had a vision of his old wife...so he jumped in the water, making the movie all the more romantic...which was the intended purpose of the film...right?

and the best quote of the movie

"great lines"

Waterworld (boat driven by Randy Smyth)

the recent remake of Thomas Crown Affair, with Formula 40 catamarans, one of which was also crewed by Smyth, and he can be seen crossing the boat in one scene

The Irving Johnson Cape Horn videos have been jerked, dang it

Here's a film that probably most of you haven't seen- it's called "O mundo em duas voltas" about a Brazilian sailing family who follow Magellan's route around the world 500 years later in their 54 foot steel ketch. It's in Portuguese, but even if you don't speak the language, it's full of fantastic sailing and great photography, especially in the Patagonia and Straights of Magellan. You can watch it on youtube.


first part of the film:


The rest of the film is in parts from 2 to 9:
