A movie from 1996 which I just watched. Directed by Ridley Scott and has Jeff Bridges as the skipper of the Albatross, a 'prep school' sailboat. The voyage presents a growth opportunity to teenage boys who enlist and is actually based on a true story. The scenery is majestic and this film is something like 'Stand By Me' meets 'The Beach' - beautiful sea & sky with lush music score, lads coming of age ..and a spot of tragedy. Jeff, Scott Wolf, Ryan Philippe and Jason Marsden have the most noteable performances.
