Sir Robin Knox-Johnston: Sailing Legend – Full Documentary

A feature-length sailing documentary film chronicling the extraordinary life, career and record-breaking voyage of the legendary ocean racer and adventurer Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, the first person to complete a solo non-stop circumnavigation of the globe.

In his own words, Sir Robin recounts the astonishing story behind his epic achievement over 50 years ago. Hear from Sir Ben Ainslie, Alex Thompson, Chris Bonnington and Dee Caffari on how Sir Robin continues to inspire others to push themselves to their limits and be adventurous.

“To me, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston is an iconic figure and one of the greatest sailors to have ever set foot in a boat” – Sir Ben Ainslie

“The thing that made Robin stand out so much was that he wasn’t well known, he wasn’t famous, he was an ordinary chap who built his own boat and did something nobody on earth had ever done before. Through sheer drive, guts and determination.” – John Simpson, BBC Correspondent
