Go Fast Go North by Spencer Weber



This exciting documentary follows the challenge of the Hot Mess Team in its attempt to win the Race2Alaska, an uninterrupted journey from the British Columbia Coast to Alaska. The rules are simple: No motors, no outside help or support, first boat over the line wins.

The film places us all the time inside the boat to experience the adrenaline, the tension and the traditional camaraderie among the picturesque members of the team.

The film is a thrilling account of the life at sea in contemporary times aboard "the old girl", as the sailors often call their sailing boat, which dates back to 1979 and was an aerodynamic jewel in the 80’s.
