Trivia

In many shots the film skippers (Will, Morgan and Jack) can be seen driving the boats from the leeward side while beating to windward. In reality, most of the time skippers drive their boats from the windward side, mostly to help keep the weight on the windward side and also to give themselves a better view of the incoming waves so they can steer a proper course around them. The reason for putting the film skippers on the leeward side was so that the real sailors could control the boat from the windward wheel while remaining mostly out of shot (you can see their legs occasionally in some scenes.)

Goofs

At the climax of the final race sequence, Charley (the red-headed crewman cut from the boat) is seen on the rail of the spectator yacht watching the race, and then inside watching on television in the next shot. See more »

A thriller for sailing lovers
10 August 1998 | by (Sao Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

It's a great movie for those who like and enjoy sailing. The nautical vocabulary is used but there's nothing too complicated about it. It's filled with beautiful images of sailing boats and of the America's Cup. Check on it and I doubt you'll regret.
