WOOD, WIND & WATER, Classic Yacht Racing in Antigua, 1999
Produced by Carolyn M. Ford, Co-produced by Anne T. Converse
This 26 1/2-minute documentary set in the context of the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta in 1999, centers around three days of racing and focuses on different types of yachts, their owners, builders, and designers. This regatta was of particular importance because it was the first time since the 1930s that the three restored J Class Boats, Velsheda, Endeavour and Shamrock V had raced against one another. This extraordinary small gem of vivid color and sound with original musical score, captures the essence of what each sailor yearns for.
