With the next edition of the Vendée Globe Ocean Race set to start in France on November 10th, I thought there would be renewed interest in the film we made about the 2008 Edition of this ultimate test of grit, spirit and technology.
Having sailed quite a bit on a Canadian built Open 60 and having closely followed the 2008 race, I decided to start this blog to do a running commentary on the 2012 Edition of the Vendee Globe race and make sure people know about all the films made about sailing Open 60's - simply awesome machines!
The film about the 2008 Vendee Globe Ocean Race is available on iTunes, Amazon and SonyPS (Netflix coming soon) and all the money gets put back into sailing through Wind Athletes Canada - a charitable organization supporting sailing.
Our film is being marketed along with 3 other films about offshore sailing on Open 60's. Here is the link to learn more, watch some cool trailers and rent or buy the full length film: http://www.sailingaroundtheworld.tv
So as we follow the 2012 Vendee Globe, and you just can't get enough - check out these films to get your sailing adventure fix.
Hope you enjoy my commentary and the films.
