Sailing Documentaries / Movies

I did a quick search and I did not come up with anything. However forgive me if this is a repeat.

I recently watched morning light and I have been looking around a bit for some documentaries on the history of sailing, came up with some good ones but I was wondering if there are any favorites our there that are a must see.

Movies are good as well.

As for movies, this is a pretty exhaustive list: Nautical Movies

Documentaries: "Deep Water" is outstanding. I also recently found two that are available online, one for free and the other for ten bucks.

Free one ("Hold Fast"), which is about four young people finding a boat and taking her to the Bahamas, T&C and DR: Hold Fast, a documentary about anarchy and sailing - Boing Boing

"Ice Blink" (Family reflects on cruising adventure): Ice Blink

I'm sure there are countless others that are out there.

I have a Mystic Seaport video called Around Cape Horn that is narated footage from a trip aboard one of the last flying P line cargo barks, the Peking. Increadible footage and wonderful naration by the man who took the footage as a youngster. Amazing stuff. Possibly still available through Mystic Seaport Museum?
