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

The final race ended with both boats on tack. The 1987 America's Cup race that the movie was based on ended on a downwind run and both boats would have had full spinnaker sets up. See more »

Quotes

Morgan: Everyone wants it easy today Will. And the reason we don't have the Cup, is that we don't deserve to have the Cup.

Great score
6 November 1999 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

This is a great movie for people into sailing. Has some really spectacular shots. Has the best racing shots I have ever seen. The best thing about the whole movie is the score by BASIL POLEDOURIS. He has done it again another masterpiece.
