Sailing Movie: Morning Light

We finally got a copy of Morning Light. This is the story of a group of the best college dinghy sailors sponsored by Roy Disney to race the 2007 Transpac from Long Beach to Honolulu.

It has a lot of fun stories of training and racing, the best of which is a truly bizarre encounter with their class rival, Samba Pa Ti.

Morning Light
has a chance crossing of paths with the other main competitor in the TP52 class. This happens over a 1000 miles from land and away from other boats. The two teams duel for a day or so before splitting up again.

After having been out on the ocean, I did not have a lot of sympathy for the team when they started missing pizza after 10 days.

All in all, this is a fun, inspiring movie in the Disney tradition.
