5 TOP SAILING MOVIES
Okay, so a couple of these are more like adventure movies set at sea, but they’re all worth watching.

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 2003-2017 Which one? Well, you can yo-ho-ho your way with Johnny Depp through any one of these six swashbucklers on a snowy evening.
IN THE HEART OF THE SEA 2015 Not quite man-bitesdog, but whale-sinkswhaler. This tale of starvation at sea will have you assessing your crew in a new way.
