One Outstanding

The story is centered on Sir Peter Blake’s victory of the race after many attempts, and the battle that emerged between the two ketches Steinlager 2 and Grant Dalton’s Fisher & Paykel. 

One Outstanding is a tribute to Sir Peter which includes unseen early footage of his sailing endeavours and success's in the America’s Cup. In addition to Sir Peter, the film features, Steinlager 2 crewman Brad Butterworth, F&P’s skipper Grant Dalton, Bruce Farr (designer of both ketches) Bob Fisher ( journalist ) and Lady Pippa Blake.

This is a film I made in 2004 about the 1989/90 Whitbread Around the World Yacht Race.
