Bernardo Arsuaga was a weekend sailor himself - a fan of the sport, but not a world competitor like a certain member of Duran Duran! When Bernardo, who had NO experience directing a movie, decided he would make a documentary about the unexpected victory of the Mexican yacht Sayula II in the first crewed sailing race around the world, he was taking a big leap of faith. He set forth with a lot of passion and it paid off.
THE WEEKEND SAILOR, which has now competed in, and won, many Festival Awards, is narrated by none other than Simon Le Bon. Bernardo shares his story in our latest Q&A posted in the EXCLUSIVE section of the website!
