Vikas Kapur shared with us these scenes of a beautiful, sunny day in October. "We were pleasure-sailing and did get to see a bit of the racing of the Leukemia Cup alongside Angel Island," he writes. "The big ketch was very impressive."

The crew, left to right, were Kapur’s longtime friends Ken, Ian, Marcie and Martin. "The gentleman in shorts is actually a proud representative of a seafaring nation — New Zealand — although he’s lived here many years."

"We were on Ry Whitt, a Jeanneau 40 we chartered from Modern Sailing in Sausalito (I’ve been a member there for about 10+ years)."

We’d like to introduce a few films that wouldn’t necessarily be considered ‘sailing movies’, but have references to, or underlying hints of sailing and/ or seamanship.
