The first film is titled 'Racing Around the World Alone' and it is about the 2008/2009 Vendee Globe race. The film follows 30 sailors that set out to sail 27000 miles around the world in this epic race.

It is broadcasting on several channels worldwide including documentary Channel and is also available in HD on iTunes! http://itunes.apple.com/ca/movie/racing-around-world-alone/id484701614

It is coming soon to Sony and Amazon as well.

The second film in the series is called 'The O Canada Project '. It is about the refit of an Open 60 sailboat in New Zealand after it was forced to retire from the last Vendee Globe race, as well as the experience of testing and learning how to sail the boat now called 'O Canada'. It is taken through a rigorous routine by kiwi skipper Dan Slater and a group of elite dinghy sailing athletes from Canada. The camaraderie of the sailors and their individual experiences shine through in this film.

The film is also being broadcast on documentary Channel and is available in HD on iTunes.
