The Story of a Caribbean Tradition

“A haunting, captivating story that will pull heart-strings and etch in the mind of the viewer.”
-Classic Boat Magazine

Celebrate and appreciate the art of wooden boat building and the passion of the West Indies seen through the eyes of family members to keep the tradition alive for another generation.

With hope and resources now in the wooden vessel, an aging devoted boat builder tries to complete the build of a beautiful yacht in time to race in the Antigua Classic Regatta.

Sponsored by the Maritime Museum of San Diego (MMSD), Ancient Mariners Sailing Society (AMSS) and San Diego Marine Exchange are proud to announce the San Diego Screening of this international, award-winning, and celebrated documentary film Vanishing Sail Friday, April 7, 2017.

Established in 1975, Ancient Mariners Sailing Society’s purpose is to preserve and promote interest in sail and power vessels of traditional and/or classic design.
