If you sit here long enough, all the world passes by again and again and again.

I second that. Captain Ron is a classic! Although when I encourage my wife by saying: "If you want to be promoted from Swab, to Mate you gotta"... She still doesn't see the humor in it. M.

Re: best sailing movies

Yep, that was my first thread question back in October last year. I got some great suggestions and enjoyed them all.

I don't think it hurts to revisit the issue from time to time.

Help Me with Movie Choices About Sailing

Favorite Sailing Movies

I enjoyed Dove, Captains Courageous, Dead Calm, and Wind the best I suppose. These are the ones I recall from my feeble memory.

Re: best sailing movies

I have not seen alot of the sailing movies that you guys are talking about. Are they older or newer? I am in need of a good one.

They're all a bit older, mostly from the mid '80's I believe.

Re: best sailing movies

"Deep Water." Documentary about the 1968 Vendee Globe in which Moitessier, Knox-Johnston, Chay Blythe, Don Crowhurst, etc. competed. Stunningly well-done.
