Movies and Documentaries.

“I’ve got a tired on boat and a crew of mutinous dogs” – Will Parker, WIND

“You know what’s better than winning the cup? It is losing the cup and winning it back” – Will Parker, WIND

“WIND” is the “Top Gun” of sailing movies. It follows a “fictional” American skipper who lost the America’s Cup race to the Australians and vows to take it back. We say “fictional” because it is kid of about the America’s Cup race of 1983 when the Australians used a new boat design to beat the Americans for the first time in many, many years.

Although an America’s Cup boat will never race at Creve Coeur, the spirit of the race, the competition between skippers, crew and boats exists at every lake there are two or more boats sailing.
