Bob Griffith sailed into Honolulu Harbor in 1960 and met fellow iconoclast Nancy Hirsch. From that moment they were wedded to the sea. Steering their 53-foot cutter Awahnee to places no small boat had been before, they spent decades navigating the relentless pull of family and adventure. Combining recent interviews with exquisitely textured archival 16-millimeter film-shot by Nancy, on location from Antarctica to Polynesia, in the 1960s and 1970s-Following Seas is not only a story of world records and sailing feats, but of a family who truly lived a self-determined life and made the sacrifices their dream demanded.

Riveting movie for those looking for a different road in life!
27 November 2017 | by bigbulkymailSee all my reviews

For those (such as me) who identify with living a non conventional life this is a great movie. This movie is not about getting rich or seeking power. It is about living a life in the moment while seeing the world and experiencing life from a totally different perspective. The main voice providing the (autobiographical) narration of the real life footage that was shot in 1960's is the much younger (at the time) narrator. She and her family are the subject of the footage. She tells the story in a mesmerizing way in a mesmerizing story in a time before GPS and other such technology. She is at the end of her life as she tells the story.
