The Spirit of Sailing with Paul Elvstrøm

Jørgen Ekberg, 1969, 13 min., Engelsk speak

Sports is not necessarily competition, nor show or excercising. The great talent may first and foremost be seen as an artist among other artists, having a genius for  expressing himself through his athletic abilities. This film shows Paul Elvstrøm sailing in three different types of boats while telling about his experiences on the sea.


Filmen er med engelsk speak. Den findes også med dansk speak med titlen Sejlads.

Denne film kan ikke indlejres på andre hjemmesider pga. rettigheder.

Fantastic video !! A legend by himself, amazing cameraman to take the shots in the dinguies with such old cameras...

Wonderful to see Paul in action. His teachings and philosophies were very much a part of my life while leaning to sail, and still are, as one is always learning. Watching him in action here, puts me right in the boat, and out on the water with him. Thank you for posting this video!

Sailing clothing was not as stylish and efficient as now days.

Greatest sailor of all times. My hero when I was young. Had the privilege to sail against him once in larger boats around the isle of Møn.

Very nice video! I have taken the liberty to share it on Elvstrøm Sails FB page. We never cease to be proud of our heritage and founder. Thank you for sharing.
