Sir Peter Blake - The Boy From Bayswater

Television (Full Length) – 2003

This 2003 TVNZ documentary looks at the life of New Zealand’s most celebrated sailor, Sir Peter Blake. The film ranges from Blake's Waitematā sailing childhood to Round the World racing; from leading Team New Zealand to double America’s Cup victory, to the setting up of Blakexpeditions. The documentary uses archive footage and interviews with crew, mates and family to eulogise the adventurer with the windswept blonde mane and moustache. It was made in the wake of Blake’s 2001 death, while on an Amazon expedition to raise environmental awareness.

Peter Blake was a North Shore guy who did well. He loved sailing, loved his family, loved having fun, and had the huge gift of being a natural leader.
– Ceramco crewman Simon Gundry
