Orlando B. Parker: [reading a letter] Dear Abby, we made it, but without your advice. My friend and I had this little problem of no food, no water, no wind - nothing out in The Big Empty. But we learned somethin' you can tell your sob-sister readers - when you start quittin', the dyin' begins. Quittin' is very bad for your health and that's a fact. Sincerely, Orlando B. Parker.

The best movie on sailing and self discovery ever made>
22 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

The first time i saw "The Voyage of the Yes" I was a freshman in high school in 1972 It was a Made for T.V. Movie of the week. I new nothing of sailing or boating for that matter.The movie and plot are simple I agree but it introduced me to the Magick and freedom of sailing And I never forgot it,Mow some 29 years later I am a sailor and own the same modle of Sailboat that was used in the movie a Columbia 26 MKII Named GHOST "EL Condor Pasa" The latter being my link to the movie. Thank you Paul. I sail out of ThunderBay in Alpena Mi.And when I pull in the sails and lean into the wind And my Sailboat glide's across the bay i think to myself "YES" and I know it dosent get any better than this! The movie changed my life and will always be a part of me. Thank you Desi and Michel Don Dingee "GHOST"
