5 Sailing Movies to Watch When You Can’t Sail

There are some days you simply can’t sail, such as on days when the weather is bad. When we can’t get out on the water for whatever reason, we love to indulge in a good movie about sailing. Here are some of our favorites to help you get your sailing fix when you can’t get it from sailing. 

Wind
Starring Matthew Modine and Jennifer Grey

Genre: Action, Drama
Year Released: 1992

Anything that involves America’s Cup gets our attention, as this movie does. In it, a sailor and a lovely woman are brought together by their quest to claim the Cup. The shots of the boats in this movie are amazing, and the storyline is amusing too.

The Perfect Storm

Genre: Action, Drama, Adventure
Year Released: 2000

This one is a classic. You may have already even seen it due to its popularity when it came out, but it’s worth another watch. If you watch this movie when the weather is bad, it’ll make you glad you’re not on the water in a storm. This movie heavily focuses on weather.  

Madison
Starring Jim Caviezel and Mary McCormack

We love that this movie is based on a true story of a man who entered a Gold Cup Championship Race. It focuses on his personal struggle to victory. An inspirational movie for the whole family.

Morning Light

This movie follows the crew of 15 young competitors during six months of intense training. It highlights their determination and hard work training and competing in a big race. The crew is young (between ages 18 to 23). They compete against some of the world’s most experience sailors of that time.


Cast Away
Starring Tom Hanks and Helen Hunt

Year Released: 2000
Genre: Adventure, Drama

This movie focuses on one man’s quest to survive after being stranded on a deserted island due to a plane crash. It’s not sailing centric as the other movies but Tom Hanks, whose character is an award-winning sailor, makes this movie worth the watch.
