Uncharted Waters Olympic Sailing Documentary

Sunbrella and US Sailing Team Sperry come together to create a feature film about the passionate quest of 11 American Olympians and Paralympians.

Have you ever taken a leap of faith? Left the safety of the shore just for the chance – the hope – that one day you will look back and say it was all worth it?

“Uncharted Waters” explores what happens out of the spotlight’s glare for 11 athletes on their way to Rio with the US Sailing Team Sperry. While the world focuses on one race, the real story is what it takes just to get to the starting line. Giving up friends, family and school while going into debt to dedicate yourself to an obscure sport. Training alone in a makeshift gym in your garage. Recovering physically and emotionally from brutal injuries. Hoping your fate is certain while knowing that everything could change in an instant. Here are those stories:

Features US Sailing Team Sperry athletes: Paige Railey, Caleb Paine, Annie Haeger, Briana Provancha, Paris Henken, Helena Scutt, Rick Doerr, Brad Kendell, Hugh Freund, Sarah Everhart-Skeels and Cindy Walker.


Presented by Sunbrella® in partnership with the US Sailing Team Sperry.
