Hold Fast !

"Hold Fast, a documentary about anarchy and sailing"

Ever dream of taking off for the equator, fixing up an old boat, and then sailing it off into the sunset? Well, a few years ago, a group lead by Moxie Marlinspike did just that. Under the banner of the Anarchist Yacht Club, they migrated to Florida, found and restored a boat that they named the Pestilence, then proceeded to sail it around the Bahamas. Its the ultimate adventure, and luckily they captured their experience in the documentary Hold Fast.

Just found it, and watching right now.

I like how little they've began with, and just made it happen

Re: Hold Fast !

fantastic video. i watched this probably three weeks ago, before I had even found this forum. first five minutes made me worried about how watchable it would be, but the rest was dynamite.

i had just finished reading a book titled "the hitch-hikers guide to the oceans" 2006 edition. the book left me with a feeling that i could not make a trip on the ocean happen for myself. after watching the Hold Fast documentary, it made me feel like i could do it.

good inspiration.
