TheSailingChannel.TV is proud to bring you "In the Wake of the Zaca"
the remarkable adventures of a California
schooner. This award-winning documentary by Luther Greene captures a lost
age of adventure, romance, and Hollywood glamor told through the history
of a 75 year-old, 118 foot gaff-rigged topsail schooner.
Launched in San Francisco
on the eve of the great depression, Zaca
explored stone-age civilizations in the South Pacific
, patrolled the California
coast as an armed ship of war during World War II, and served as party boat for sailor and swashbuckling actor, Errol Flynn.
Left to languish as a striped hulk on a mud flat in the south of France
rose like the phoenix to sail again. Sail in Zaca's
wake and gain a unique perspective on history
and experience adventures most of us can only dream about.
