    I look forward to the movie, but the premise presented in the trailer is completely wrong. Traditional boat building in the Caribbean is dying or dead. The rise of traditional boat racing out of Europe is a completely different mater. The fact that the biggest regatta is in the Caribbean only confirms that the conditions are excellent for these boats -it's still a fantastic place to sail. Rich foreigners sailing expensive boats they bought for leisure is not the same as poor locals sailing boats they built for a living.

    One isn't vanishing, the Tres Hombres is still carrying cargo, also in the West Indies.​
