Miller Made Sailing Films Too
By now skiers have heard that ski filmmaker extraordinaire Warren Miller passed away at home on Orcas Island on Wednesday at the age of 93. What skiers — and sailors — may not know is that Miller made sailing films too. Among them were promotional films for the Hobie 33, an offshore-capable racing monohull designed by Hobie Alter and Phil Edwards and built by Hobie Cats in the 1980s. (See www.hobie33class.com for more on the Hobie 33.)
We were unable to find another of Miller’s sailing films, Hot Yachts, Cold Water, about West Coast sailing. If you come across it, please let us know.
