Film: Coyote Sailing Documentary

Last night i saw the opening of the new film "Coyote". This is the story of Mike Plant, sailor from Minnesota who sailed in several solo around-the-world races. It's a great story and an excellent film. Trailer and other information about the film are on the film's web site: COYOTE

Enjoy!

Very cool! I hope they plan to show it in our upcoming SF Film Festival. I just read the Wikipedia page on him and what he did during the 1989 Vendee Globe that got him disqualified. Pretty amazing individual.

Re: Film: Coyote Sailing Documentary

Hi, Sec,
Great trailer! I'm going to see where it is playing locally. The best line about Plant in the video was that he was born 100 years too late and sadly, the great challenges in today's world are limited(paraphrase) for a person of his caliber. The world has never listened to those that dance to a different drummer since, by their nature, they will never belong to the Herd. The Herd has a way of suffocating creative, independent, intelligent individuals and prefers those that enhance the reputation of the Herd rather than exposing their boring, safe, conventional sameness. Kudos to Mike for a life well lived. Good luck and safe sailing.

Very cool and thanks for sharing. Not sure about anyone else but sailing movies bring out the emotional side in me.

Re: Film: Coyote Sailing Documentary

I had the good fortune to have spent quite a few years in Mike's company, both on and off the water. I knew right away that Mike had the Right Stuff to be a World Class Sailor. He was that and so much more as a person. He always found the time to assist anyone he saw that needed a hand, whether it had to do with sailing or not. Mike was what in years past would be regarded as a 'Role Model', someone who set a good example for anyone who witnessed his actions or heard him speak. I saw him as such and will always carry myself as if I am still in his presence. Mike's actions spoke louder than his words. I saw him stop working many times to walk over and assist a fellow sailor with a task.

Mike climbed the Everest of sailing every day of his life, and deserves to be remembered as one of the World's greatest sailors. His early loss devastated those who had known him. Mike had so much more to give, glad that his story continues to be told, so others may be inspired.

Re: Film: Coyote Sailing Documentary

Google Play has options to either buy or rent. Any suggestions as to which is better? It's $3.99 versus $5.99 so not a bank killer, but curious if I can then view it on my computer rather than phone? Is it worth watching more times over or playing for friends? Is large hard drive space needed?

Buy the movie, you will definitely want to watch it multiple times.

Also, Sailing Illustrated interviewed Thomas Simmons, director of Coyote: The Mike Plant Story.

Thomas Simmons, director of the documentary film COYOTE: The Mike Plant Story, was our special in-studio guest. His film is getting great reviews from sailing and non-sailing media, as well as screenings and awards at multiple film festivals.
