Father and 3 kids are making a passage in the PNW at the end of the season and get caught in a storm.
They wash up in a desolate rocky bay with a few injuries, a sail and damaged dink.
The weather is continuing snow showers and plummeting temperatures. They spend maybe 12 days on the shore whilst deciding what to do, hoping their mayday was received and the search party is out looking.

In the end, dad and one kid walk for help but only get as far as a shack in the woods. They find a radio and blow it up, get marooned there for 2 weeks before moving on.

Kids on the beach spend all their time wrapped under the sail living off raw shellfish in hypothermic conditions.
There is a lot of frost bite but eventually a rescue.
As with all these things, no one mistake made a disaster, but when a bunch add up, it makes a bad situation worse.

All based on a true story. Watch and learn. Dont make the mistakes they made.


I think that's 'Anything to Survive':

Anything to Survive (1990) (TV)

The most vivid scene I remember is where the children survive by eating seaweed infested with worms!

Recently watched a film called 'Donkey Punch':

Donkey Punch (2008)

The movie is almost entirely based on a gorgeous Ferretti 780 (I think) luxury yacht in the med, in a loosely similar vain to Dead Calm though more 'adult' in theme.

Already have 'Deep Water' on my 'to watch' list when it comes through on rental, and have just added 'Captain Ron' following several mentions in this thread.

"Visitors" Australian movie about a girl who sets out on a solo circumnavigation and gets stuck in the doldrums for a long time and goes a little (ok a lot) nuts. Not a lot of sailing as the boat just sits there, but makes one think hard about how one handles loneliness.

I doubt anyone else has ever seen this, at least without trying to shoot themselves, but I give a mention to "Kill Cruise" a film I found in a bargain bin somewhere. It actually has some nice sailing footage of a decent boat.

Amazon.com: Kill Cruise: JŁrgen Prochnow, Patsy Kensit, Elizabeth Hurley, Franz Buchrieser, Grazyna Szapolowska, Carmel S. Aquilina, Manuel Cauchi, John Suda, Elton Mamo, Mario Stock, John Ciantar, Kimba, Edward Klosinski, Peter Keglevic, Susanne Sch

Can't believe that nobody mentioned the movie "Wind" with Matthew Modine and Jennifer Gray. Everybody needs a whomper!

Hi, Reality Check, I want to thank you. I've been trying to think for the longest of the name of that series. I would sit in front of the TV every week for that show. I was just a kid but was already crazy for sailing.
Thanks again.

Fast & slow

The Thomas Crown Affair (1999 version), for about 8 minutes of gorgeous and thrilling cat racing in New York Harbor.

From my childhood: Voyage of the Brigantine Yankee. First really tragic movie I ever saw. Hard to find, so try Wikipedia for background.

Probably the first sailing movie I saw (on TV, just before Moby Dick) was "Two Years Before the Mast" loosely based on Dana's
book, the book was much better true story, and I highly recommend.

Yeah, Captain Ron's always good for a good laugh.Already mentioned before were Failure to Launch and 6 Days and 7 Nights.Then there's Romancing the Stone. Well except for Ron, these only have one or two boat scenes, but they're fun.
