    Anyone seen Wind (1992) or Turning Tide (1993) ??
    Yes "Dead Calm" simply brilliant.

    Some here will vouch for "The Riddle of the Sands" but I can't stand Jenny Agutter accent.

    Forget sailing and her accent, you have just reminded me of An American Werewolf in London...

    To be honest I avoid ‘sailing’ films if I can, they almost always include some form of disaster and ‘nasty’ . As it is I find I can conjure up enough ‘nasties’ whilst I’m sitting alone on watch at 03.00hrs to keep me aware of what can happen at sea without Hollywood giving me any more to worry about.

    the book is worth a read imo, ill wait for DVD on the film, The mercy wasnt great - i thought the documentary deep water told the story better - so my expectations are low for Adrift

    I've not seen it, but my mum (who was sailing on the yacht in question a few months before the events in the film) enjoyed it and said it was "quite true to life".

    ?
    Bit "tall shippy " but try Captains Courageous with Spencer Tracey (1937?) superb sailing sequences of Grand Banks Schooners.
