The Spirit of Yachting

ATV World

This is a series of six documentaries filmed in some of the most glamorous locations in the world. The series captures the unique blend of adventure, lifestyle and excitement that surrounds the world of professional sailing. The documentaries are character-led narratives through the eyes of key individuals, bringing each event to life.

Traditional sailing programmes rarely capture the imagination of anyone other than hard-core sailing enthusiasts. But The Spirit of Yachting series uses the events as a dynamic background to the stories that unfold behind the scenes.

Building on the success of last year's series, The Spirit of Yachting will again use a thematic approach to each episode. The result - who comes first, second and third - will be important, but won't be the key to the programmes.
