Storyline

Spanning the decade from Mike Plant's arrival in professional offshore sailing in the mid 1980's, COYOTE follows Plant's daring spirit as he challenges both Mother Nature - around the world alone on a sailboat - and French dominance in the sport. Chronically underfunded and undermanned, Plant's thirst for adventure and fearless belief in his dreams drive him to become an American hero of the sea.

Phenomenal!
6 January 2018 | by brendanholsberrySee all my reviews

What a phenomenal film. While I missed the detailed nuances of the film that the sailing community can respect and appreciate, the film clearly delivers an inspirational story of adventure. The flow of archival and present day footage works extremely well, and quickly creates emotional ties with the subjects. Well done Thomas Simmons, the film kicks ass.
