The Weekend Sailor
Directed by Bernardo Arsuaga

Mexico, 2016 | 75 min
In Spanish and English with English subtitles

In 1973, the first ever Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race, now the Volvo Ocean Race, was won by an unlikely competitor from a country with no sailing history. The captain of this venture also had no boat and barely a crew. Competing against experienced sailors from around the world, Ramon Carlin is the perfect skipper, and the perfect leader – getting the best out of his crew through respect and example. —AB
