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

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.
