The Hum

Short Film (Full Length) – 1974

It’s a hobby, an obsession, a lifetime commitment ... it’s like standing in a cold shower in a raincoat ripping up dollar notes.
– The narrator, on the lure of sailing
It’s Stagg’s reputation that where other boats might run for cover he’ll be crowding on more sail.
– The narrator, on Stagg's bullish approach
She [Mum] knew that I was going to be a yachtsman — a successful yachtsman. I used to sit on the bloody potty reading the Rudder magazine. From that day on she knew it was all on.
– Stagg, on his early love for sailing
