Quotes

Tracy Edwards: We were a real mixed bag of mostly dropouts, misfits and gypsies and nomads. We were all running away from something, but we were family units... I mean surreal family units.

Surprisingly Captivating
27 July 2019 | by gmj-00016See all my reviews

After being reluctantly dragged to this movie by my spouse, I found myself surprising interested in a sailing race I would normally consider the silly pursuit of the idle wealthy. I came to care whether the female crew succeeded in its unlikely quest.

The movie is well worth seeing even if you know or care nothing about around-the-world sailing.
