SEAS shows sailing documentary
SouthEast Alaska Sailing Club will host a special showing of “The Weekend Sailor,” a documentary about how “in 1973, against veteran superstars of sailing, an inexperienced Mexican captain raced in a 9-month deadly round-the-world regatta in an attempt to come home a champion.” A live question and answer session with the film’s director, Bernardo Arsuaga, will follow the film.
“The main challenge was not the human skill of their competitors, but the forces of nature on the open sea,” says the poster for the film.
The showing will be at The Gold Town Nickelodeon at 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 26. The suggested $15 donation will go toward the club. For more information, go to www.seasailing.us.
