The International Rule

November 14, 2006
SKU: 165


In 1906 „The International Rule“ was developed by the leading sailing nations. It was the birth to the so called „Metre Classes“ for the international racing without a handicap system. Although the U.S. did not participate in the beginning, the formula became a tremendous success. It created very beautiful and at the same time superbly performing yachts.

100 years later the Metre-Yachts are still very much in vogue. Classics are restored, new boats are designed and built and spectacular fleets gather at the start lines. Also, the use of these yachts for cruising is popular.

The film follows the development of the Rule through these 100 years while taking you aboard of some stunning representatives. The locations reach from the Baltic, like the Swedish Marstrand, to mediterranean places like Cannes and St.Tropez.
