Tall Ships Race Film 'Bigger Than Your Self' by Paul Farmer


Bigger Than Yourself from Paul Farmer on Vimeo.


Two youth members of the crew of the schooner Trinovante tell their own story of the Tall Ships Race 2008 between Bergen in Norway and Den Helder in the Netherlands. To their amazement they find themselves winning their class until wind and ocean take a hand. It's a tale of gales, calms and a close brush with Aberdeen, with reflections of international friendships made and dreams of all-day breakfasts....
Paul Farmer: filmmaker and producer.
