Sailing Movie Nite!!! (An Armchair Sailor’s Evening Out)
Gulf Charters Thailand is hosting sailing movie night each month at the Sailors Bar at Ocean Marina. Join the scene and screen some great sailing education and entertainment films. This social event has been going strong since the beginning and thank you all for attending. Come one and all and discover a nice way to spend Friday evening in the comfort of the Sailors Bar at Ocean Marina hanging out with sailors, family and friends.
This month’s movies are:
1.)Volvo Ocean Race 2001: documentary covering this popular around the world race. An excellent film which will give viewers a real life impression of the rigors and challenges that entries in a race of this type really face, whether sailing through the tropics or dodging icebergs down in the Southern Ocean. Want to join the team? After watching this film, you may think twice… 45 min.
2.) Ross Kemp On Pirates: Part 2: the second in our 3 part documentary series covering the realities of piracy on the high seas today. Follow Mr. Ross as he dives into the world of modern piracy and tracks down both sides of the story, interviewing Navy and other marine law enforcement personnel as well as several crews of real pirate ships. Focus on Somalia and S.E.Asia pirate hot spots. A must see for anyone planning to do any long range cruising on a sailing yacht, especially if you plan to sail in Somalia. 45 min.
3.) Captain Ron: this month’s feature film starring Kurt Douglas as the sailing instructor hero. This is the all time classic charter boat captain gone native story. Captain Ron seems to have spent a lot of time kicking around the beaches and bars of the Caribbean and at first glance is underestimated, but the nuggets of sailing knowledge and unconventional teaching methods are quite effective at turning a typical suburban middle American family into a crew of salty sailors in the Captain Ron tradition. Also stars Martin Short. Don’t miss it! 1 hr. 20 min.
The Sailors Bar will be open and there will be food available on the front deck.
March 19, 2010, 18:30 to 22:00, Sailors Bar @ Ocean Marina
We hope you can participate and make our popular Movie Nite!!! a regular part of your involvement with the local sailing scene. All will be welcome, family, friends and neighbors. Come one, come all!
