ASA's Inside Sailing

We’re proud to announce a new video series called “ASA’s Inside Sailing,” where we conduct on-camera interviews with prominent and/or interesting figures in the world of sailing.

Latest Episode

Tracy Edwards

Skipper of Maiden

We had the pleasure of interviewing ocean racer Tracy Edwards in anticipation of a fantastic new sailing documentary called Maiden that tells the story of Tracy and her all-female crew racing around the world in the Whitbread Round the World Race back in the late 80s, early 90s. It’s an action-packed film that is as much about sailing as it is about the evolution of a society’s attitudes and mores towards women.

Tom Simmons

Director of ‘Coyote: The Mike Plant Story’

In this episode, we spotlight Tom Simmons, Director of Coyote: The Mike Plant Story (trailer). In his feature length documentary Simmons delves deep into the life of American solo-sailor Mike Plant who was both an extremely daring sailor and a very compelling character. In our interview, we ask Simmons (also the nephew of Plant) what he learned about sailing, filmmaking and himself after the immersive process of directing this extraordinarily well-made and in-depth biography.
